President’s Advisory Committee on University History

The President’s Advisory Committee on University History advises the President of the University on matters relating to the history and traditions of the University that require historical interpretation, sensitivity, and expertise. The Office of the President determines which matters come to the committee as issues arise requiring advice of this nature. As a general approach, the committee will provide to the President a report that discusses the historical dimensions of the issue in question, the impact of various approaches to the issue on the University’s appreciation and maintenance of its history and traditions, and recommendations of actions for consideration.
