Biological Sciences (Restructuring in New Brunswick),, 1971-1974


  • 1971-1974

Scope and Contents

Bulk years 1972-1974. Dean Foster exclusively.

Folder contents include the whole array of records exchanged between a department and the Dean's office, including budget memoranda, correspondence, curriculum proposals, requests for equipment and personnel issues, including hiring and firing. This particular folder provides documentation on faculty response at DC to reorganization/centralization plans. It also provides an excellent example of the Dean's office serving as middleman between University administration and DC faculty. Dean functions as messenger and conciliator. Finally, this folder is interesting for the forcefulness of the department head and draws attention to the management problem for the Dean's office of dealing with exceptionally talented but independent minded individuals.

Portion of documents related to a proposal to establish a graduate program in Human Genetics and Genetic Counseling.
