Campus Development Program
President E. Bruce Heilman and the Institute of Advancement are
currendy involved in the three-year $5 million development campaign
' for Meredith. The Carlyle Campbell Library, a dormitory, a college cen
ter, and a physical education facility are included in the plans.
A library construction contract for $723,097 vi'as awarded to the
Clancey and Theys Construction Company of Raleigh during the sum
mer. Furnishing and equipment for the library, when added to construc
tion costs, will bring the total to less than a million dollars. The new
library will be named for President Emeritus Carlyle Campbell who re
tired in 1966 after serving as president of the college for twenty-seven
years. Construction is expected to be completed in time for use at the
beginning of the 1968-69 school term.
The new dormitory, providing space for an additional one hundred
resident students, and the physical education building are to be under
construction as soon as Meredith receives final approval from the Baptist
State Convention.
Plans for expansion of the Mere
dith and North Carolina State Uni
versity inter-institutional coopera
tion to involve all Raleigh colleges
and universities won approval at
the meeting of the Meredith Col
lege Board of Trustees Tuesday,
September 26. The trustees con
tinued Tuesday morning a semi
annual session begun Monday night
at a dinner meeting.
The group also approved a new
program providing the local com
munity opportunity for “culture un
der the stars" through expanded use
of the Mclvet Amphitheater. The
amphitheater will be made avail
able to the Raleigh community for
such activities as »erettas, dramas,
and pop and symphony concerts, as
well as civic and church conferences.
A move was also begun to in
crease student fees, effective next
year. The executive committee
asked that fees be raised $150 per
semester, with 100 going for tuition
and $50 for room and board.
Expanding the inter-institutional
cooperation program will mean in
volvement by not only Meredith and
NCSU, but also Peace, St. Mary’s,
St. Augustine’s, and Shaw Univer
sity. The presidents of all six col
leges have already begun meetings
