Harry C. Payne presidential papers

Identifier: HCB-001-014

Scope and Contents

Harry (Hank) C. Payne, who had been Provost, was appointed acting President for 1987-1988, and no initiatives were undertaken during this period. Nevertheless, in the spring of 1988 Haverford underwent the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools accreditation review. In addition to the evaluation report itself, the self-study that included a number of background materials reflect the current state of the College. The Middle States evaluation and the President's Office files mention ongoing concerns with several issues, including diversity, the curriculum, particularly a reassessment of the "Dimension System", and the growing need for attention to campus automation.
