new college plan. Supported by the resources available in these four institutions, the authors of this plan propose a liberal arts college which could
provide a high-quality education to 1,000 students at a relatively low unit
cost. The proposal involves a revolutionary type of education through the
cooperation of these four colleges. Economies would be possible because
extracurricular activities of limited educational value would be prohibited
in the new college and because courses would be carefully scrutinized and
their number kept to a minimum. As a result of this and because of the
reduced course requirements for students, the ratio of student to faculty
would be 20 to 1 as against the national average of about 13 to 1.
