Numerous Changes Result
In More Academic Freedom
Sacred Heart College experienced numer-
ous changes this year, and growth was evi-
dent in the results. Under the direction of a
new college president and through a revised
curriculum, students at The Heart enjoyed
more academic and individual freedom.
Succeeding Sister Sylvia Gorges, Father
Roman S. Galiardi was appointed as presi-
dent ofSacred Heart College.
Born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1930, Father
Roman had served as President of St. Proco-
pius College, Lisle, Illinois, for the previous
six years. He received his B.A. Degree in phi-
losophy from St. Procopius College, his
J.C.B. and J.C.L. in canon law, and M.A. in
clincial psychology from the Catholic Univer-
sity of America, and his J.C.D. in Rome.
Throughout the year, Father Roman
proved his ability to communicate with the
college community and the community at
Sacred Heart College also introduced
changes in the curriculum to make education
at the university more personalized. They
eliminated required courses above those for a
major and cut the number of hours required
for graduation from 128 to 120.
Students designed their own study pro-
grams, selecting subjects they felt related to
their major fields and courses at the grade
level they wanted or were prepared for. Fac-
ulty members and advisers were available for
assistanceg however, the ultimate choice and
responsiblity for education lay in the hands
of the students.
Sister Tarcisia Roths, academic dean, ex-
plained the change in curriculum as an at-
tempt to help each student "in his personal
growth toward maturity and responsibility
and a meaningful life."
The school also restricted the number of
hours each student could take per semester
from 18 to 16 to provide more study time.
With the individual in mind, the college
officials have structured their programs to fit
the needs, goals, and interests ofthe students.
These changes strengthened the efforts to
provide and attain a liberal arts education.
