The Inauguration of President Bonner and the New
WSU Administration Is Like Academic Ecumenism

Inauguration of a new
administration at Wayne
State University developed
into an academic
ecumenism.
Every community ele-
ment, all faiths, with an
inter-racial emphasis,
marked the unity of a city
acclaiming its cultural
leadership as it commences
a new era of creativity.

Dr. Thomas N. Bonner,
who was installed as the

seventh president of
Wayne, outlined a 10-
point program of action
as a policy for the univer-
sity under new direction.

Dr. Bonner pledged:
• "An unswerving dedi-
cation to the goal of excel-
lence, both in our academic
programs and in service to
the people of this commu-
nity and state.
• "An effort to achieve
the enthusiastic involve-

ment of the entire Wayne
State family — faculty,
staff, students and alumni
— in the achievement of
this goal.
• "A high profes-
sionalism in the adminis-
tration of the university, in
academic matters, person-
nel management, develop-
ment, physical plant and
across the university, tem-
pered always by compassion
and concern for the indi-
vidual.

cohesive,
• "A
enlarged and
strengthened organiza-
tion of urban-related
curricula and programs
for all our cities, consis-
tent with Wayne State's
position as a learning
university in a city where
urban policy is being
shaped for all America.

• "A renewed and
strengthened commitment
to affirmative action and
upward mobility, along
with improved monitoring
of such efforts across the
university.
• "An aggressive effort to
expand research activities
and research opportunities
throughout the faculty.
• "A much broadened
movement to involve the
private sector in our efforts
to build outstanding under-
graduate and graduate pro-
grams, especially in
engineering and business
administration, economics
and finance.

• "A sympathetic and
assertive interest in all ef-
forts to `rehumanize' our
very large campus and to
develop a greater sense
of community, of pride in
the university and iden-
tification with it through
strengthened athletic
programs and more and

better study, lounge and
recreational areas.

• "A strong effort to in-
crease the attractiveness of
Wayne State to students
from beyond the immediate
(Detroit) area through crea-
tion of attractive residential
communities — either
through a consortium effort
if possible, or on our own if
necessary.
• "Finally, we will con-
tinue to strengthen our
vital commitment to the
fine arts, the folk arts,
music and drama both in
the university and with our
neighbors here in the Cul-
tural Center."
Dr. Bonner, an historian
and academic adminis-
trator, left the presidency of
Union College in Schenec-
tady, N.Y., to become
WSU's president Aug. 1.

There were more than
600 persons represent-
ing faculty, students, vis-
iting academicians and
community at the inau-
guration at Ford Au-
ditorium.

More than 900 attended
the inaugural luncheon at
the Plaza Hotel.
Dr. David Henry, as guest
luncheon speaker, was
enthusiastic over the de-
velopments of the univer-
sity he had served as
president. He was in his
youth again, greeting
former associates and
friends.
Dr. Henry, who served as
the third president of WSU
from 1945 to 1952, said, "In
the growth of enrollments
in our nation from hundreds
to millions, an expansion of
educational opportunity
would not have been possi-
ble, if our urban univer-
sities had not been able to

WSU's Dr. Stern Is Named
to Leo Baeck Institute in NY

Wayne State University
Vice President and Provost
Dr. Guy Stern has been
named to the executive
committee of the Leo Baeck
Institute of New York.
Stern, who assumed his

role he played in the Ameri-
can Christian Palestine
Committee whose sessions
he attended here and in
Washington.
