L I B E R A L A R T S F A C U L T Y The administration, working in close co-operation with the State Office for Higher Education, formed the Liberal Arts Department with the thought that the curriculum would then be well balanced and more easily accredited by other institutions. In order to give the administration a fair basis for selecting courses, a detailed study was made of the Liberal Arts Departments of other schools. After a careful choice, tentative courses were established. In organizing the school, President Leasure received helpful suggestions and valuable advice from the Board of Trustees. The Liberal Arts Faculty was chosen with the same' care with which the course had been organized. They were selected according to ability, merit, and background. Lists of available teachers were checked, and those chosen were interviewed. This method insured a good choice of teachers. Soon after the school was under way, a committee on curriculum was put to work enlarging and re-adjusting courses. The State Office for Higher Education highly complimented the school for its ability to organize so smooth a working program in so short a time. Paul Smith’s College received an accredited rating, and its program was approved in full by the National Association of Junior Colleges and the State Education Department in Albany.
