Record Group 9 - University Council

Originally known as the Council of Administration, this body was formed in 1920-21 "to assist the president of the institution in administrative matters, chiefly concerning students." (Previous to that time, an "Executive Council" had much the same purpose.) Later, the scope of the council was expanded to include academic matters and its name was changed to the Academic Council. In 1966, the name was changed to the University Council.
