Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Collection is composed of correspondence, questionnaires, minutes, supplementary data, drafts, and final reports from four task forces of the Budget Priorities Commission. Task Force I - Administration and support services; Task Force II - Student support services and activities; Task Force III - Academic calendar and utilization of the Academic plant; Task Force IV - Professorial rank and faculty development. Of note in the records of Task Force II are a report, brochure, and publication of the Black Student Volunteer Center.
On October 3, 1974, the University announced the formation of the Presidential Commission on University Budget Priorities. Six task forces were set up to deal with six broad areas of concern: administration and support services, student support services and activities, academic calendar and utilization of the academic plant, professorial rank and faculty development, sponsored research volume, and professional schools and the operating budget. Professors John Linvill, Benjamin Page, Henry Breitrose, Konrad Krauskopf, David Montgomery, and Daniel Bershader headed the task forces.
