UNF Library Special Collections and University Archives: UA1978-1
The Records consist of the official minutes, with attachments, of the meetings of the Academic Council from 1970-1978. Attachments include correspondence, memoranda, plans, statistical charts, and reports. Topics covered in the meetings are: academic programs, policies and procedures; major unit philosophies and objectives; responsibilities of academic officers; accreditation plans; admissions policies; enrollment projections and statistics; faculty and staffing plans; fiscal concerns and budgets; and library development. The Records are significant for researchers because they provide documentation of the initial organization and development of the academic structure of the University from its inception during its formative decade, and show early decisions and input made by charter university leaders.
