aspoem To 333 sxlrr, January 13, 1941


When the Committee on Accredited Relations was established in 1919
or 1920, only the University of Kentucky, the University of L0uisville,
”lransylwv ia College, Centre College and Georgetown College were members
of our regional accrediting body, the Southern Association of Colleges and
Secondary Schools. The University was being frequently asked to bass on
the standing of Kentucky colleges by the federal office of eduCAtion, by
the state denartment, by colleges and universities throughout the country.
Many ouestions faCed us in connection with students of colleges that had
gone out of existence, as well as with those of colleges th1t were in oner-
ation but not yet able to meet acceota ole standards, and we were destined
to deal with nroblems connected with colleges yet to be born.

minutes of the University Senate a January 13, 1941

Registrar concerning the treatment of students asking for advnnced standing,
to set standards by means of which we could evaluate and did those of our
Kentucky colleges not yet ready for membershin in the Southern Association.

The committee has during the years helned in the solution of many ruin“
ling nroblems of admission end advanced standing; has advised with sister
institutions of Kentucky in e kindly, helnful snirit that has earned for the
ity lasting gratitude and friendshin, and has been o marked influence
ing and nreserving standards in the state. Accreditation by the Uni—
versitv, according to law, entitles a college to train teachers for the nublic

It Can be easily imagined that as our work has nrogressed through the
years, it has grown less burdensome. Fewer insnections of colleges now need
to be msde, renorts required need not be so fullsome every veer, stan nrds
need not be revised so frequently. Having discontinued the examination of
colleges when they secured membershin in the Southern Association, we now
have under our Care, so to sneak, only three four~year colleges of the six-
teen in the state ~ Bowling Green College of Commerce, Kentucky Wesleyan
College and Villa Madonna College, and only eight of the fifteen junior col-
leges; namely, Ashland, Camnbellsville, Caney, Lees, Lindsey-Wilson, Loretto,
Padncah and St. Catherine. One of our Southern Association junior colleges,
h0wever, is now ennlying for accreditment as a four~year college and was
insnected by us last week.

Our efforts, then, during the nest year, have been confined largely to
urging and siding these eleven institutions to attain a status worthy of
membershin in the Southern Association.

During the year 1939~40, the committee held five meetings. At the
first we adonted a new renort blank devised by Dr. Chamberlain, and annroved
the annointment of a teacher in Paducah Junior College concerning whomthere
was some question, At other meetings we considered the renorts from our
eleven "charges", and determined those noints of weakness thst seemed most
serious. Later we studied the reolies to our suggestions. Dean Taylor, at
the request of the committee, visited the Bowling Green College of Commerce
to inquire into certain phases of their work. Finally, all but one of the
institutions have been accredited for the nresent year. This one is being
investigated with some care in response to charges that its administration
is such as to jeonardize effective educational work.

There will probably always be need for a committee on accrediting,
even after all institutions of the stwte have attained that delectable 5
state of Southern Association membershin, for advice to sister institutions
must be given and the committee might again be of service as an advisory
committee in matters of admission and advanced standing. However, if, as
an ivory~soen official said here a few years ago, the object of the scan—
maker is to make a bar of water stand alone, so my it be said that the aim
of the Accrediting Committee is to make itself superfluous.
