    Description of the Collection

    Records of Vice Provost Raymond F. Bacchetti consist of correspondence, memoranda, minutes of meetings relating to the Budget Adjustment Program (BAP), 1970-1975; records for the academic year 1972-1973, including correspondence, memoranda, salary charts and graphs of income and expenditures ; correspondence and memoranda relating to Black and Chicano students at Stanford, 1970-1971.
    This collection is divided into three series: the records of the Budget Adjustment Program (BAP), 1970-1975, which make up the largest part of this collection; the budget for the academic year 1972-1973; and Minority Affairs.
    SERIES ONE: The Budget Adjustment Program was designed in 1969 in response to the patterns of university expenditures and income, which were rapidly draining the university's financial reserves. The original BAP goal was to reduce the university's operating budget vase by $2,500,000 over a four-year period from 1970 to 1974. But at the end of 1970, it was realized that this goal was based upon an overly optimistic economic viewpoint, and BAP was revised to save $6,000,000 over a five year period from 1970 to 1975.
    BAP was divided into five phases, each one academic year long, and identified by a Roman numeral. Thus BAP I covered the year 1970-1971, BAP II, 1971-1972, etc. Within each of these phases, a specific university wide reducation goal was to be met. This sum was then broken down, and each school and department was assigned its own budget reduction goal, to be achieved by internal reorganization of priorities for greater operational economy. This collection, composed of memoranda, correspondence, and agenda and minutes of meetings, reflects the financial conditions in which many colleges and universities found themselves in the late 1960's, and the solutions proposed by one such institution.
    SERIES TWO: The second series consists of the background materials used in the preparations of the university budget for the year 1972-1973. It contains interdepartmental memoranda, correspondence, salary charts, and graphs of income and expenditures relevant to budget planning in every phase of Stanford University's operations.
    SERIES THREE: The third series, Minority Affairs, deals with the concerns of Black and Chicano students at Stanford in 1970-1971. Included are memoranda on budgeting for funding of Black and Chicano Studies programs, hiring of minority faculty members, minority admissions, correspondence from the Black Student Union (BSU), and Mecha, the Chicano students' organization, and newspaper clippings collected by Mr. Bacchetti on topics concerning minority students.
