Business Administration rustees approve 85 million for classroom, office building Construction of a S5 million College of Business Administration facility received approval in February from the Board of Trustees. The proposed building would have enough classrooms and offices to ac- commodate 1,700 business majors. About 1,200 students were enrolled as business majors in 1981-82, said Jozelle Brister, assistant professor. The year before the department reported 1,126 majors. Although Ms. Brister said she could not predict whether or not the number of business majors would continue to grow, This page: bottom right - Editing a COBAL program requires senior Steve Harper's full attention: bottom right - College of Business Administration facul- ty.

Business faculty members began in- vestigating the possibilities of constructing a new business building shortly after the department of business became a college in May 1981, Ms. Brister said. Henry Kissinger, former secretary of state, spoke at a promotional breakfast in Dallas for the College of Business. A group of the college's supporters were introduced at the breakfast attended by about 600 people. The reorganization of the school's departments into colleges also brought some administrative changes in the Col- lege of Business. Ms. Brister, who joined the faculty in 1979, became assistant dean to Dr. William Petty, dean of the college. Ms. Brister said her duties included mostly administrative details, leaving Petty free for long-range planning. One goal that she said Petty was plan- ning for was accreditation of the college by the American Assembly of Colleges and Schools of Business. ACU's business department was a member of the AACSB, but was not accredited by that group, Ms. Brister said. One of the assembly's criteria for ac- creditation was a student-teacher ratio of 25-to-1. ACU's ratio was 127 students for each full-time faculty member. In at- tempts to reduce that ratio, two professors were hired. Dr. Phillip Lewis was hired in the spring semester to begin teaching management courses in the fall of 1982. Lewis, a 1964 ACU graduate, had been with the Univer- sity of Oklahoma since 1970. Dr. Michael Robinson, who taught Cost Accounting, Managerial Accounting and Operations Research, joined the faculty in the spring semester. Robinson received his doctorate from the University of Illinois, known as the nation's foremost school for accounting. Also new to the campus was a chapter of Phi Beta Lambda, a national business organization. The club, organized by Kathy Polk, a junior marketing major from Nebraska, was open to any student enrolled in a business class. Polk said the group intended to help promote awareness of American business among college students. Business majors also attended Business FRONT ROW - Ed Timmerman, Don Altman.
