5. We established the Roads Scholars Program. We increased the money for I recruiting and the leadership met with the recruiters. We moved to create regional campuses - not just in one area but in four areas. We established a residential college system. We re-established political contacts in Frankfort. We became active in statewide educational movements, the movement to reform higher education in Kentucky. _ These are but isolated examples of a movement where we began to look outward rather than inward. The guiding stars of that movement were access to [ ·· higher education and what is best for the students. The leap of faith in that _ philosophy is that when students are recruited and they are retained then faculty and staff morale automatically is enhanced. It has happened. 0 We haven’t been perfect by any means. This place will change and the lure of inwardness is as strong as ever, but it is a deliverance that does not deliver. Our students and prospective students must be our priority. A For Murray good leadership is a must. Without it we will quickly revert to the days when the institution begins to exist for itself rather than those that it serves. Because of Mu1ray’s location and its size relative to other universities in Kentucky and the distance to state government, Murray State has to be united and it has to scratch. It has the leadership now to do that, but we have to constantly be on guard because the lure is to be comfortable and the lure is to look inside.
