"This has been a year for change," said ACU President
William J. Teague. Of the many changes implemented,
Teague said his most satisfying accomplishment was the
establishment of visiting committees.
The committees, composed of various ACU alumni and
members of the community, visited four departments during
the year. Six additional departments were to be visited dur-
ing the next year. Each visiting committee was assigned a
department to meet with, evaluate and advise.
"The establishment of visiting committees," Teague said,
"is the single most effective way to stay current in academic
A reorganization of major administrative tasks
highlighted the year, said Teague. He decided to reorganize
his administrative staff to place each individual where he was
One major change in the staff was the appointment of Dr.
Gary D. McCaleb as vice president of student services.
Teague said this change took place because of Garvin
Beauchamp's retirement announcement. "McCaleb is
unusually gifted in student matters, and I wanted to give him
the opportunity to counsel and serve in a different capacity,"
McCaleb also was in charge of the visiting committees.
His additional duties gave him a wider scope of student con-
tact, said Teague, This enhanced the university's long-range
goals, which Teague defined as "sharpening our perception
of capabilities and future service . . . also, to expand our in-
fluence to increase enrollment and to enhance academic in-
tegrity and Christian commitment."
Along with changes in administrative policy, Teague
substantially redefined the roles of department heads. In the
past, heads of departments have had very little control over
their departments, the president said. They now have more
counseling responsibility with other faculty members and in-
creased budget and salary responsibilities.
The department head should know more about depart-
mental financial resources and have more input on raises
than in the past, said Teague. Raises used to be computed
mathematically and each faculty member received an equal
raise. However, department heads now will delegate money
for raises to those teachers who deserve it, Teague said.
Teague was directly or indirectly involved in many of the
changes on the campus. In many situations, Teague said, "I
have been the initiator. However, in other situations I have
merely been the catalyst." - Kelh Tolron
