WHILE WE are are not in a position to evaluate all of the assertions made in The Sun's May 13 editorial, the Essex Community College AAUP chapter would like to clarify one point. You noted that full-time faculty are paid at a higher rate than part-time faculty for teaching summer sessions.Under the dictates of board policy and personal professional responsibility, the full-time faculty are charged with maintaining the academic environment of individual classes.Excellence in teaching, the most important function and ultimate goal of the faculty, is supported by many hours spent in committee work, in creating and evaluating curricular programs and academic policy, in counseling students and in individual scholarly pursuits.

Despite some grumbling, Baltimore County's General Assembly delegates unanimously approved without amendment yesterday a Senate bill reforming the county community college board of trustees, making enactment likely next week.The measure would enlarge the board from 11 to 15 members and impose a limit of two consecutive five-year terms. It would also distribute the membership geographically by having two members from each of the seven County Council districts, and one chosen at large.Some of the delegates -- and college faculty members -- wanted to include provisions requiring a student member, setting qualifications and training for board members and preventing reappointment of the board's longest-serving members.

McDaniel College faculty and administrators have spent years poring over potential ingredients for a new undergraduate curriculum. With a dash or two of the right resources, that curriculum could better prepare McDaniel students for life beyond college. A review of the college's curriculum, fostered by a planning grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, inspired its latest recipe, which the faculty approved last week. That review began with faculty conversations on how best to educate students for the 21st century, said Thomas M. Falkner, the college's provost and dean of the faculty.

It comes as no surprise that the acting director of the Peace Studies program at Goucher College is a soft-spoken man. Nor is it a shock to discover that Robin Crews was a conscientious objector during the Vietnam War, or that he admires Gandhi. These facts all play to the stereotypes of peace activism, which Crews sums up as images of "protests and hippies and love beads and peace symbols." Luddite -- one who resists technology -- can be part of that implicit stereotype, too. And that's where Crews begins to confound expectations.
