Description"During the 1974-1975 academic year, following Dr. DeRolf's departure, Dr. Frank D. Sorenson, who had been Assistant Dean, was named Acting Dean of Continuing Education, effective August 1, 1974-June 30, 1975. Leslie F. Malpass had been appointed President. Sorenson was a professor of educational administration and came to WIU in 1965 as Assistant to the Dean of Public Services and Coordinator or Extension. A 1954 graduate of the University of Nebraska, he also received his master's (1958) and doctorate (1962) degrees in educational administration there....To Sorenson's credit, many of the policies and procedures he developed for running Credit Extension had been instituted. he helped lay a solid foundation on which the Continuing Education credit program could flourish. during the year Sorenson served as Acting Dean, he provided President Leslie F. Malpass and Acting Provost James J. Murphy with a report on the status of Continuing Education. According to Sorenson, the Credit Extension Program had grown steadily, with only one plateau, since 1964. That plateau occurred when the Board of Governors of State Colleges and Universities' staff dictated that Extension courses would be taught on load. It was also the first year since 1962 that the credit program operated from a general revenue budget. A new method of processing registrations was initiated with the help of computer service personnel, and reports could now be generated daily for accounting of enrollments, headcount, etc., by class and for the entire program. WIU conducted 56% of the courses at the Quad Cities Graduate Studies Center Consortium and had 54% of the enrollment."
