Responsibilities

Embodied

Mafiy A7?ierican colleges and universities have chosen to establish a statement of the rights and responsibilities of the institutions and their students. These statements help to clarify the philosophy of the schools and also aid prospective students and parents in making their choices of an institution to attend. In keeping with this trend, representatives of the Longwood factdty and student body

have drawn up the "Longwood College Statement of Rights Responsibilities." In order that all parties involved cotdd discuss this statement, It teas on the agenda at the "Retreat" held prior to the opening of school u'ith faculty members, student leaders, and administrators, and voted on at a fall faculty meeting. This statement has been accepted by the Legislative Board and the factdty, and on November 7, it was officially adopted by the Board of

and

Visitors.

the

in

joint

statement

is

the

concept that

freedom and rights do carry with them certain responsibilities for all members of the college community. The Board of Visitors, therefore, asserts the responsibility of all involved to follow established and orderly channels of communication, inquiry, and dissent and to desist from any action which interferes with the rights of others to pursue their normal educational tasks. Recognizing that the student body has certain rights and responsibilities, so, too, should it be observed that certain rights and responsibilities accrue to the faculty and staff of the College. The faailty and staff have the responsibility of establishing and maintaining open channels of communication through which student inquiry and dissent may be directed. On the other hand the faculty and staff have the right to expect that students will recognize student responsibility to peacefully direct inquiry and dissent through such channels.

Responsibilities In a period of American history marked by major campus unrest, and even violence, the Board of Visitors of Longwood College views with great pride the positive attitudes displayed by the student body of the College.

that this statement will convey the pre-

The

objective of

that of providing

an education of high quality. In order that this might be accomplished, the Board of Visitors recognizes that certain rights and certain responsibilities must be incumbent upon the varied parties involved in the educational process. This includes the student body as well as the faculty and staff. Total effort should be expended to promote acceptance of the concept that all groups comprising the college have a common objective in securing such an education of quality.

The student body has the right to expect that the fundamentals of due process will be accorded to each and every student just as these fundamentals also must be accorded to all members of the college community. The Board of Visitors, therefore, adopts as institutional policy "The Joint Statement on Rights and Freedoms of Students" published in 1967. This document was prepared by a joint committee representing a wide range of student and professional organizations. The Board wishes to note its concern that members of the college community have the privileges and rights accorded to other citizens.

The Colonnade Club

During the hrst year, a busy year in which the organiwas constantly searching to find the best way to serve its members, Lee served as membership chairman, participating in all events. The Club held several luncheons; a tea; a smorgasbord to which husbands or dates were invited; sponsored a panel discussion on "Contemporary Trends in Art, Literature, Music, and Drama," to which the Hampden-Sydney Hill Club was invited; initiated a discussion of festival customs, dress, and recipes in foreign countries by members of the Club of foreign origin; and presented two fashion shows. The fall show was in cooperation with Travis's, a local dress shop, and the spring fashion show a much larger undertaking was represented by Baldwin's, Esther May, The Hub, Leggett's and Travis's. As her major contribution to this varied program, Lee was coordinator of the Spring Fashion Show, a task that involved bringing together the models and the stores; the publicity, ticket sales, staging, decorating and programs. The first year ended with a family picnic at Holiday Lake. zation

Class prophecies seldom predict accurately the future course of a student's career. Had there been a prophecy for the Class of 1962 it would not have been likely to predict that seven years after her graduation, Mary Lee Warriner of Amelia would still be associated with her Alma Mater. This time in the unique capacity of president of The Colonnade Club, an organization of ladies on the faculty and staff of the College and the wives of faculty and staff membersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; an organization which Lee played an integral Nor did Lee have any realization that part in forming. within seven years she would be the wife of one of the academic department chairman of the College. Lee entered Longwood in the fall of 1958, expecting to become a medical technician after receiving her degree in biology. By her senior year, she had decided that she wanted to teach biology. The reason for this change She had met Marvin W. Scott, a recent graduate of Hampden.-'

Sydney who was working at Longwood as a research assistant in biology. Lee and Marvin were married in August, 1962. She taught for three years: one year at Randolph Henry High School in Charlotte Court House while Marvin began his career as a college teacher at Hampden-Sydney, and two years in Christiansburg while he went to VPI to graduate school to pursue his doctoral studies. Her teaching was interrupted by the arrival of her daughter, Kathryn

The next year Lee was elected first vice-president in charge of programs. Among the programs for the year was a panel discussion featuring "A Spotlight on International Diversities" and a panel discussion on "Social Determinism The Club also held such versus Individual Freedom". social events as a tea, the family picnic, the smorgasbord, a square dance and a bingo party.

Page, now age four. Shortly after the Scotts returned to Farmville in 1966 when Marvin assumed a teaching position on the Longwood faculty. The Colonnade Club was formed. This Club has its roots in a series of informal teas which had been held monthly in the Alumnae House since 1965 with women in the various academic departments taking turns as hostesses. The idea for these teas had originated within the Social Committee of the College, whose members felt that with the growth of Longwood the women connected with the College needed opportunities to become better acquainted. Recognizing the need for an organization that would help develop a more meaningful relationship with the college by affording them the opportunity of getting to know each other in a wider variety of activities, a group of faculty wives began the difficult process or organizing

This year, with Lee as president, the Club is continuing enrichment of the community life of the College. On her executive board are a group of excellent officers: Mrs. Henry I. Willett, Jr., Honorary President, Mrs, T, CuUen Dalton (wife of the Director of Special Services), First Vice-President; Mrs, George R.

Longwood was indeed fortunate to have as Associate Director Mrs. A. Tyree Finch of Farmville who, as Mr.

expresses it, "had the affection and respect of the group and sustained our morale at crucial moments." We were also fortunate in having as Assistant to the Director David R.

remember Dr. Jarman's chapel talk on master teachers? I often wish that some of our new teachers could draw inspiration from that speech! I have served on the State Board of EduProfessional Committee on Citizenship Education this year. It was an interesting and, I hope, beneficial approach to encourage all teachers to assume greater responsibility for improved teaching in this area. group of us attended the spting luncheon of the Norfolk-Portsmouth Alumnae Chapter to hear Dr. Willett, our President of Longwood, speak. All of us were most impressed both with the work he is doing and with the lines of communication he has opened with the students.

If vou haven't visited our alma mater recently, plan to come on Friday for Founders Day to view the magnificent campus and to meet the "Big Four": Dr. WiUett, Col. Carr, Dean Blackwell, and Mr. Dalton. You will wish you were a student again. It has been a marvelous experience, serving as second vicepresident of alumnae. Meeting new people, spending the night at the alumnae house for board meetings, keeping up with the new Longwood, and working with Liz Jones have been highlights of my life during the past two years. To those of you who think of Longwood as long ago and far away, go to your looking-glass and view deeply to sec what is there. None of us would be exactly what we are today had not Longwood cast its spell on our personality or our profession or even our romantic ties. Do Come Back!
