Concerned citizens and those involved in American higher education all noticed Frank McVey's influence. It is important to note, though, that most of his reforms were centered on issues of restructuring, faculty, governance, internal renovations, and increasing education's presence within the commonwealth. The major newspapers noted that enrollments were on the increase, but McVey's tenure saw no new fundamental structures. Aside from the fact that many students were not able to enroll because they were not able to find lodging, the faculty received low salaries. Aside from having to deal with the challenge of retaining faculty members, another issue was developing extra physical space to cater for the student population growth.

Keywords:   student population, structures, increased enrollment, low salaries, faculty retention
