Policy: "If we (the university) have any worthwhile contribution to make towards the progress of our community, and I claim we have, it is essential that we realize our responsibility to the community and the community realize their responsibility to the university. To this end I support a broad, libera! policy with regard to all College activities, and the formation of a more understanding relationship between Victoria College and the larger community."
