A Proposal to Establish The Council of the Princeton University Community. A Report of the Special Committee on the Structure of the University.
Princeton Univ., NJ.
To effect a system of university governance in which a broad range of opinion may be brought to bear on policy issues and in which differences of opinion within and among groups may be heard, Princeton University's Special Committee on the Structure of the University has proposed the establishment of the Council of the Princeton University Community. The proposed Council would have the authority to "consider and investigate any question of University policy, any aspect of the governing of the University, and any general issue related to the welfare of the University." Part I of this report presents the basic features of the Council, and states how it may be expected to operate in practice and how it would fit into Princeton's governmental structure. Part II contains the Charter of the Council, which describes the authority, membership, organization, and procedures of the proposed Council. The 57 Council members would include representatives of the faculty, administration, undergraduate and graduate students, alumni, the Staff Council, and the professional library, research, technical, and office staffs. The President of Princeton University would be the Council's presiding officer and Chairman of its 15-member Executive Committee. The Charter provides for six standing committees: one each on governance, rights and rules, priorities, relations with the local community, resources, and a judicial committee. (WM)
