Throughout the 77-year history of Abilene Christian, one group had remained firm in its goals for the university. The Board of Trustees. a 69-member organization, was commit- ted in 1982-83 to ensuring the quality education that had established ACU as a prominent institution of higher learning. "Our interests were to serve the needs of the students," said Ray McGlothlin jr., chairman of the board since 1974. "We achieved our business through selecting a sensitive ad- ministration, providing a sound religious and financial base, and sustaining a sound relationship with the public and other institutions." The board was basically a policy-making body with responsibility to the endowment funds and the allocation of gifts to the college. "We didn't handle the day-to-day opera- tions ofthe college," McGlothlin said. "But any major move - like tuition increases, the budget, salary levels - was reviewed by the board. 1983 was a landmark year for decisions involving tuition O at ACU. For the first time in several years the board decid not to raise tuition. "There was a prevailing sentiment on t board to hold the line on tuition, gear some discipline spending and hold down the burden on the studen' McGlothlin said. Although 1983 was not a year marked by major crises grandiose accomplishments, the chairman said the tuitii decision and the beginning of the Margaret and Herm Brown Library expansion were major decisions. Some changes in membership occurred, as four nc members were added to the Board of Trustees and two we named to the National Board. Bill Waugh of Dallas, Stanley Lockhart of Houston, O. Weber of Beaumont, and Don Conder of Lubbock we selected to the Board. Dr. Ira Hill of Locust, NJ., and Rall Harvey, of Oklahoma City, Okla., were named to the r tional group. The Board was saddened at the death of Willard Pair who McGlothlin had succeeded as chairman. Paine was long-standing member of the board from Lubbock. He h been selected to the Board in the mid-19505. B Sherrod and B. Collins were honored at the 19 Recognition Dinner as having served ACU as Boa members for 50 years. McGlothlin said the Board was a self-perpetuating gro and that one key function to maintaining a successful uz was electing new members to replace retiring members. "Electing men whose religious ideals matched those the history of the Board was very important," the chairm said. "Our board was remarkably united, if you have select the right individuals, then when a crisis or a major decisii arises, you can handle the problems well." The Board worked closely with the administration guiding the university in its high ideals. The sentiment of t Board was that the relationship it had with the current a ministration was very strong. "We had an excellent relationship, and when you di with fine Christian people the ability to get along is higl McGlothlin said. - Phillip Dunon. s..:. i's.e's S he Ilr .. E 3 ...A . ir
