Abstract

The Wayne State University Student-Faculty Council served as a policy recommending body, and offered students a voice in university government. The organization recommended policies concerning student activities and student welfare to University President Clarence Hilberry. The three main issues at this time were the affairs of the Student Activities Council, addressing concerns students brought to the Council, and protecting students against arbitrary action by faculty or administrators. The Committee on Committees recommended students and faculty for the Council's seven executive committees: academic affairs; organizational affairs; program development; publications; recognition and eligibility; student activities budget; and Student Center and auxiliary student services. Student-Faculty Council activities were published in The Daily Collegian. The Student-Faculty Council was a member of the United States National Student Association. Cecil Crump served as chairman of the Council from 1960-1961, the period covered by these papers. Harold F. Powell, a professor of educational philosophy and a member of the Student-Faculty Council Executive Board, joined the faculty of Wayne University as a special instructor in 1946. His records of the Student-Faculty Council include meeting minutes, correspondence, agendas, reports, a roster, and budgets.
