To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 5198), formally requesting the University of South Carolina to allow the College of Criminal Justice, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
DEWITT WILLIAMS, for Committee.
FORMALLY REQUESTING THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA TO ALLOW THE COLLEGE OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE AT THE UNIVERSITY TO REMAIN A COLLEGE RATHER THAN BE RENAMED THE "SCHOOL OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE" AND PLACED UNDER THE COLLEGE OF HUMANITIES.
Whereas, the College of Criminal Justice at the University of South Carolina in Columbia has for twenty years performed remarkably in training students for leadership positions in law enforcement areas; and
Whereas, the College's academic standards have been high and its record of accomplishments superb; and
Whereas, the College of Criminal Justice is now in danger of losing its status as a college and instead being renamed the "School of Criminal Justice" and placed under the College of Humanities; and
Whereas, the General Assembly does not feel such a change in status is in any way justified and believes that making that change would seriously impair the ability of the College of Criminal Justice to continue its excellent work. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, formally requests the University of South Carolina to allow the College of Criminal Justice at the University to remain a college rather than be renamed the "School of Criminal Justice" and placed under the College of Humanities. Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Dr. John Palms, president, and to the Board of Trustees of the University of South Carolina, in care of Dr. C. Edward Floyd, board chairman.
