Dr. Robert E. Marshak
Working closely with the faculty, Drs. Gallagher, Copeland and, as of September, 1970, the new President Robert Marshak, an internationally renowned physicist, started four-year bachelorŐs-masterŐs programs for advanced students in English, Romance Languages and Mathematics. A Special Admissions Program for high school juniors allowed a small number of highly gifted
students to bypass their senior year and come directly to the College.
On a larger scale, beginning during the Marshak years and continuing through to the present day, many programs were begun, or expanded, with the aid of highly competitive grants from such prestigious sources as the National Science Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, various private foundations as well as endowments from concerned alumni.
