Accessing the Collection
In January 1969, the new Committee on University Governance held its first meeting and elected officers. The committee consisted of nine faculty members, nine students, and two persons appointed by the Chancellor from the administration. There were four sub-committees: steering, consultants, resource materials, and problems of interim governance. In addition to the sub-committees, three task forces were appointed to give leadership in three concomitant phases of study.
The final draft of the university constitution was completed in the spring of 1970 and was approved by the faculty and student body. The principal governing body was designated the University Senate, with elected faculty and student representatives and administrative staff appointed by the Chancellor.
