Organizational History

According to the Washington State University (WSU) Faculty Senate web page (as of August 2012), "The mission of the Faculty Senate is to exercise the legislative powers delegated to it, and to make recommendations to the president and appropriate administrative officials of the University and through the President to the Board of Regents on matters affecting the general welfare of Washington State University and its educational, research, and service activities."

On April 12, 1971 WSU's Board of Regents approved the creation of a University Senate, which included undergraduate and graduate student representation, as well as faculty. The Senate originally arose out of student/faculty conflicts in the turbulent 1960s/1970s, and was intended as a place where faculty and student could cooperatively engage on legislative matters. On June 3, 1983, undergraduates were officially removed from the group, and the University Senate became the Faculty Senate.

Collection Description

The collection solely of the minutes from the meetings of the Washington State University Faculty Senate and its predecessor, the University Senate.

COLLECTION ARRANGEMENT

The collection was received in a single chronological series, and that arrangement was retained. The 1971-2000 years were received as bound volumes; subsequent years are individually foldered.
