The Committee of Fifteen Created by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University. Reports, June 9, 1969.
Harvard Univ., Cambridge, MA.
This pamphlet contains all the statements of the Committee of Fifteen submitted to the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and concurrently circulated within the Harvard community. The reports constitute a record of the Committee's work to June 9th under its 3 charges from the Faculty: to investigate the causes of the April crisis; to assume full responsibility for disciplining the students involved in the forcible occupation of University Hall; and to consult with representatives of the other Faculties and student representatives in order to recommend changes in the governance of the University. The first and longest document, "Interim Report on the Causes of the Recent Crisis," is accompanied by 9 memoranda written by Committee members. "Report on Disciplinary Decisions" summarizes the Committee's actions in the 138 cases presented to it in connection with the occupation of University Hall. The text of a letter sent to 102 students placed "under warning" is also included. The "Resolution on Rights and Responsibilities: Interim Statement by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences" establishes specific procedures for enforcement of these rights and responsibilities. "Plans of Working Group Three" reports the planning and preliminary observations of a sub-group of the Committee investigating possible changes in governance structures. It lists several areas of exploration along with questions the group hopes to see addressed by all interested members of the Harvard community. (JS)
