New Master Plan Projects University of the Future
A revised Master Plan for Wright State University was presented to the University Board of Trustees for its consideration. The plan, covering a 10-year period, contains proposals estimated at approximately $80 million, according to WSU President Robert J. Kegerre1s.
Included are proposed buildings for the College of Business and Administration and the School of Nursing. Both would be located in the core of the main campus. Two present buildings in the Founders Quadrangle-Allyn Hall and Oelman Hall-are slated for expansion and renovation. Ambulatory teaching facilities are included for both on-campus and off-campus sites. Also recommended for major expansion is the University Library.
A utilities monitoring system to assist in energy conservation ha been included. Improved fire protection and electrical service capability are being recommended as are a water treatment plant and a hazardous materials storage building in a service complex.
The university also cites specific needs for roadways, parking structures, a student center, and an auditorium.

"For over a year, we have been preparing a Master Plan which will indicate the university's priorities and, at the same time, identify the academic and service areas most in need of expansion," Dr. Kegerreis said.
"By 1980, we expect our enrollment to increase gradually from the present levels of around 13,000 students. Conservative estimates place our growth by 1980 at 7. 5 percent compounded over present levels.
"But the planned expansion of physical facilities is not prompted by expected increased enrollment as much as it is by the university's need to have additional

space to properly service 1t present students. Each year, we virtually outgrow another building." Dr. Kegerreis said. "At present, Wright State has the least amount of space per FTE (full-time equivalent) student of any of the twelve state universities in Ohio."
Dr. Robert T. Conley, vice-president and director of planning and development, said, "We have 624,469 square feet of usable space for classrooms, laboratories, offices, libraries, athletics, and other uses. According to the Ohio Board of Regents guidelines, we will need another 333.655 square feet-primarily in the libraries, instructional laboratories and offices-by the turn of the decade to meet the needs of our students, faculty, and staff."
The WSU Board of Trustees will send the recommendations to its Buildings and Grounds Committee for review and further consideration.

Award for Teaching Excellence
Nominations for the Third Annual Wright State University Alumni Association Award for Teaching Excellence are now being taken from the almost 5,000 seniors, graduate students, and Alumni Association members eligible to submit nominations.
The eligible individuals have been sent needed information to bring to the attention of the Association's Committee on Teaching Excellence Awards the teachers who, in their opinion, distinguished themselves in their profession. The award are presented at the annual commencement ceremony.
(1) Four awards are made each year; each recipient is recognized for excellence in teaching and presented · with a certificate of achievement in teaching excellence.
(2) One of the four recipients is selected to receive an award for $1,500, and a medallion and chain to be worn with academic regalia for a one-year period or until a new recipient is named.
It is intended that these awards will be made yearly by the Committee on Teaching Excellence Awards of the Alumni Association unless in the judgment of the
committee no suitable nomination is brought to their attention.
Any full-time faculty member who has been on the staff of Wright State University for two or more complete academic years is eligible if nominated by a validated individual.
The members of the Wright State University Alumni Association feel that recognition for teaching excellence should go to teachers who convey infectious enthusiasm to their students so that learning is significant both in personal terms and in relation to each student's own

Hoehn Heads New Office of Faculty Development
Dr. Lilburn Hoehn, professor of education, will direct Wright State's new Office of Faculty Development, according to an announcement by Dr. John V. Murray, vice-president and vice-provost for academic affairs.
Hoehn, who also serves as coordinator of the educational leadership program in the College of Education, will spend only quarter-time on the new assignment during winter quarter and increase this to half-time during spring quarter.
The Office of Faculty Development was established by Murray at the request of the
Faculty Development Committee (formerly the Committee on Teaching Effectiveness) which is chaired by Dr. Marlene Bireley, also a professor of education.
In announcing the appointment of Hoehn, Murray said: "I am very enthusiastic about the opportunities available through the new Office of Faculty Development and feel that the Faculty Development Committee made an excellent choice in selecting Dr. Hoehn to direct the office. It has been a high priority of mine to have services available which can assist interested faculty in improving their instruction and I hope faculty will utilize these services."
Other members of the Faculty Development Committee, in addition to Murray, Bireley, and Hoehn, are: Waldemar Goulet, Business and Administration; Marjorie Stanton, Nursing; Barry Blackwell, Medicine; James Hughes, Liberal Arts; Rubin Battino, Science and Engineering; Ann White, University Library; and John Myron, Western Ohio Branch Campus.
The new office is primarily intended to provide resources and services to individuals and groups of faculty who voluntarily seek to improve their own instructional skills (broadly defined to include curriculum classroom transactions and related activities.)
"When I look at instructional improvement, it includes not only actual classroom instruction but also curriculum planning, organization, and evaluation," said Hoehn.
He also said that faculty members who wish to use the services of the office will be asked to complete short forms identifying their needs in the area of faculty development.
Some of the services which may be available through the new office are: consultation with departments or groups of faculty who may have common interests; identification of resource persons within the university who have special skills related to instructional improvement; and development of special seminars of interest to faculty members.
The Faculty Development Committee will serve as an advisory group to the office, said Bireley.
"The creation of the office is the culmination of a year's work by committee members. We felt the task of faculty development was so important that it was necessary to have someone with released time to direct and fulfill the tasks that have been identified."

School of Medicine Receives Excellent Marks
In its first year of educating medical students, the Wright State University School of Medicine has received excellent marks from a site visitation team of the Liaison Committee of Medical Education (LCME), the official accrediting organization for medical schools in the U.S. and Canada.
An evaluation team of four LCME members spent most of a week in a series of meetings with the school's deans, faculty members, staff, students, and affiliated hospital administrators.
"The team's review, following this intensive four-day evaluation, was very positive," said Dean John R. Beljan. "However, the full committee's decision, based on the team's recommendations, will not be available to us until after the full LCME meeting in April. At that time, we will learn, among other things, how many
students we can admit to our second first-year class." Members of the survey team were responsible for evaluating all phases of the school's operation, including its admissions procedures, curriculum design, administrative organization, teaching and research capabilities, and physical facilities.
The LCME is composed of representatives from the American Medical Association, the Association of American Medical Colleges, and the public and private sectors.
