Due to a staff deficit, the Guil
ford College art gallery is no
longer accepting new work for the
collection, initiating loans of art
work or giving guided public tours.
Currently, Teri Hammond, Art
Gallery Curator, is the only person
working with the art collection.
Her position is only pan-time. Ad
ministrative Council last spring
failed to approve a change in po
sition from half-time to full-time
for the art curator for the 1994-95
year, despite a recommendation to
the contrary from the Art Gallery
Advisory Committee (AGAC).
"We try very hard not to increase
the size of administration," said
Dan Poteet, chairman of the Ad
The role of the Administrative
Council is to make recommenda
tions to the President as to whether
to expand or subract a position, and
to evaluate current positions.
The AGAC stated that to "ful
fill the current job description ef-
fectively" the curator must work
approximately 175 hours per
month. At part time, Hammond is
currently working 84 hours.
The AGAC "strongly recom
mended" that the curator position
be changed to full time, but pro
posed an alternative if it was not
The recommendation states that,
"If an increase to full time is not
possible then the committee
requests...a...reduced program and
modified job description...to be
consistant with half time."
The reduced job description
eliminates the duties of accepting
art donations or loans. It cuts back
severely on the duties of changing
exhibitions or travelling shows
such as the Quaker Tapestry. It
does retain the duties of maintai
ning and preserving the collection
and continuing all educational pro
gramming including lectures for
Long-range plans such as pub
lishing a catalog of the collection,
building an art gallery membership
group, working to receive AAM
accreditation and expanding the
postcard project must be halted.

Goals of Guilford
The Curriculum Committee will
soon complete the first step in its
mission to review Guilford's cur
riculum. The committee, chaired
by Marleen McCauley, has drafted
a document of goals and principles
which outlines what a Guilford
education should mean.
There has not been a review of
the distribution requirements for
over twenty years. "It has never
been articulated what we want
graduates to be able to do and
know," McCauley explains.
The committee wants to define
these goals and assess whether
Guilford's curriculum meets them.
McCautey stales, "We don't know
if the changes will be minor or
The document will also explain
Guilford's educational philosophy
to prospective students.

25 "incident" at the lake which

to find students who better "fit"
