Uofl releases annual report !isity of Idaho was able to accomplish much with little " according (o the annual report released by the 85-year-old institution. In an introduction lo the report, university president, Dr El-nest W. Harlung noted the Northwest Association for Secondary and Higher Schools visited the university in the spring of 1974 and reaffirmed Ine school's accreditation. But he said, the report emphasized mat financial support does not appear lo be adequate for our assigned mission. "The accreditation document further specified what already was known, that the University of Idaho probably has a better f a c u l t y than it pays for," Harlung said. "We appreciate having outsiders recognize this dilemma. "Il is obvious, however, that we can stretch what we have only so far without damaging quality. Our efforts continue to be directed to i n t e r n a l realignment of resources which we [eel will help us to meet Ihe changing needs of our society. Fund curtailment, however, is now so accute that we are hampered by a lack of flcxjbility." During the past decade, (he u n i v e r s i t y ' s enrollment has grown from 5,174 to 7.163. The reported noted students "seem generally lo be more conscientious and career-oriented than in the past," possibly due in part-lo abolishment of the draft. Accomplishments of the 1973- H fiscal year cited in the report include: --A cooperative arrangement with the Northwest School of Veterinary Medicine ' at Washington State University to utilize UI faculty members in Ihe program and admit Idaho studentson a regular basis. -- R e s t r u c t u r i n g a n d reorganization of the UI Athletic Department aimed at producing a "small but viable program which will utilize as lillle appropriated monies as possible." The report also noted women's athletic events are receiving greater emphasis, including an increase in the budget, than in previous years. --A major revision of the tenure policy-- developed by the faculty and approved by the board of regents--which will provide a clearer basis for the granting of le'nure as well as evaluation of competency. --Purchase of a new compuler w i t h . three to live times the processing capacity of the university's previous model. --Inclusion of a f f i r m a t i v e action procedures in all hiring practices, along with a "quest lo find and retain women and minority students and faculty." -Completion and dedication of three major construction projects: The College of Law, Phase I of (he-Performing Arts Center and the E.J. Iddings A g r i c u l t u r a l - S c i e n c e Laboratory. The PAC was the university's first privately financed building with funds comirfg from students, alumni and friends of the university. --And completion of the second year of the WAMf i Washington. Alaska, Montana, Idahoi program under which some ^ludcnts of the University of Washington School of MediSine spent Iheir first semesler of medical training, mostly in basic sciences, at Ihe UI. The!report also noted lhat "with a slow growth enrollment pattern and continued struggle for adequate funding, we will be seeking innovative solutions to insure the quality of education, research and service lhat has been our goal since Ihe inception of the University of Idaho."
