very long meetings at which numerous students would wish to discuss pro-
posals of interest to them. Under such an arrangement, the Board would be
distracted from the performance of its primary business and, at the same
time, Board meetings could end up merely providing a highly publicized
platform for students to gain visibility as they express their own personal
views. The Board through its student member has a legitimate and official
spokesman for students' concerns. Matters of great importance to the student
body should be brought to the attention of the Board by the student member.
Petitions should, therefore, be routine through the Student Government Presi-
dent who would refer them to the appropriate agency within the University or
to the Board.
Mr. Griffin then moved that the proposal received at the January 19,
1971 meeting of the Board of Trustees be disapproved. His motion was seconded
by Mr. Bell, and passed unanimously.
W. Meeting Adjourned
There being no further business to come before the meeting, on motion
duly made, seconded, and carried, the meeting adjourned at 2:55 o'clock.
