The twelve years since Mars
Hill became a senior college
have seen many rapid and dram
atic changes, not only in the
physical characteristics of
the campus but also in the
orientation of the institu
tion in general. Major trans
formation of the curriculum—
now competence based— and
significant additions as the
Continuing Education Program
and the Southern Appalachia
Center are part of the col
lege's redefinition of its
academic and regional mission.
Earlier this year the col
lege submitted a proposal to
the Department of Health, Ed
ucation, and Welfare's Ad
vanced Educational Institute
Development Program (AIDP).
In late May the college was
awarded a $2 million grant—
the largest in its history—
to use in completing its full
development as a senior in
stitution .
A major portion of that
grant called for the estab
lishment of a Planning, Man
agement, and Evaluation Sys
tem (PME). This system covers
the entire college operation
and provides information for
policy-making decisions and
evaluation of the success of
the college in attaining its
"PME will allow us to have
more say about the future and
will give us a greater oppor
tunity to become what we
want," commented Dr. David
DeVries, Director of Institu
tional Research. "We will
actually be refining what ex
ists. That is,we have a plan,
we do management-type deci
sions, and we evaluate those
decisions; however, with the
PME in effect we will be
doing those things more care
fully and basing the deci
sions on a solid data base."
There are five interdepend
ent areas that make up the
whole of Mars Hill College:
finances, students, staff,
facilities, and curriculum.
The first step in establish
ing the PME is to institute a
system common to all five
areas. In the techinal lang
uage of the proposal, this
data base is referred to as
the Transactional Information
System (TIS).
As an example of how the
TIS can work, the Admissions
Office of the college awarded
$1,325,290 in financial aid
during the 1975-76 school
