Committee Advisory to the President on Reorganization
Record Group Number: RG 16.3.025
The Committee Advisory to the President on Reorganization was formed
in 1935 to discuss reorganization possibilities. Of primary concern
for this group was cutting costs while raising academic standards.
Final recommendations of the Committee were to reduce the total
number of courses offer by the College, and to classify the College
in a few division, rather than by department.
Description of Records:
The records contain minutes, summary of discussion, notes, and data
submitted during discussion for each meeting of the Committee, a
memo from the President to members of the faculty containing a digest
of faculty suggestions for reorganization, and brief outlines of
suggestions with financial information. The information included
in the discussion summaries details Committee member's opinions
