State College professors with a significant research or scholarly
accomplishment would be eligible for a cash award, thanks to the
Dow Corning Corporation. Announcement of the $20,000 endowment to
fund the Earl L. Warrick Excellence in Research Award came at a
June 4, luncheon hosted by Dow Corning.
The award was
named for Dr. Earl L. Warrick, a retired Dow Corning senior management
consultant. According to J. Kermit Campbell, Vice President of Personnel
and Public Affairs for Dow Corning, "Dr Warrick exemplified the
ultimate scientist, manager and concerned citizen in our society.a
combination we are proud to honor with the establishment of this
award for outstanding Saginaw Valley State College professors."
To be considered for the Warrick award, SVSU faculty must have completed
research or scholarly work of the highest quality over and extended
period of time. Selection of the recipient will be by a committee
including one academic administrator, the previous year's recipient
of the award, and a member of the SVSC's Board of Control.

for Fall semester jumped up 8.2 percent compared to 1985, with 5,377
students signing up for classes. Total credit hours increased even
more dramatically with the Fall students registering for 50,501
credit hours, a 10.6 percent increase over last years final count.
This indicated that students were carrying somewhat heavier class
loads. The average credit load per student then stood at 9.4 credits.
Some college administrators felt the increased enrollment is at
least partially due to the new instructional
facilities on SVSC campus such as the IF2 complex.
