NORTHWEST MISSOURI STATE COLLEGE ROBERT P. FOSTER. PRESIDENT MARYVILLE. MISSOURI OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT March 20, 1970 TO THE STUDENTS AND FACULTY OF THE NORTHWEST MISSOURI STATE COLLEGE: The Northwest Missouri State College has been fortunate over the years in that we have been able to accommodate our burgeoning enrollment with expanded services, curricula, and programs. The campus itself has become a community that is almost self-sufficient. Approximately 2,700 students live on campus, all of whom are primarily engaged in the pursuit of learning. Nevertheless, this community of scholars requires many diverse services apart from instruction that involve intricate scheduling of time and energies. The many ancillary services required to maintain the students who are here is staggering. When we think of the commu- nity that is this college it is difficult to perceive all that contributes to it. What does it mean to you as a student and to the people of Missouri? This question is worthy of thought . The students and faculty of this institution, in fact those involved in this entire academic community, are striving for excellence in education. I think we truly stand on the threshold of excellence. As we improve the quality of instruction, as the programs we offer our students are expanded or introduced, I feel we will continue to grow and continue to brighten the image this institution carries across the nation. What is an academic community really like? Well, I suppose it would be possible to find as many academic communities in this country as we have colleges and universities. One thing that is unique about this institution is that there is a loyalty that is unusual on any college campus to be found here. The faculty and administrative staff alike are agreed that students are important and there is a demonstrated care shown for our students. I am convinced that the students know this and respond accordingly. It is true that we have many problems, many of which are very difficult and some of which will still be with us a generation from now. Further, we can anticipate many new ones. I think there is an honest and conscientious effort on the part of all concerned in this academic community to really face the issues and to solve them as they arise. I think if we are to be successful in the pursuit of learning we must manifest this type of response from our students and our faculty. I have said many, many times that what makes an institution great is the people who are there, the faculty and the students. I think no other campus in the country can compare with the quality of the young men and young women who walk this icampus and the faculty vriiich serves them. It is my hope and desire that you will appreciate, after being a student on this campus, the degree to vriiich the influence of this academic community will condition your values, your performance, and your attitudes for the remainder of your lives . Jt U f2 - Robert P. Foster President
