The lost retort of this Committee to the Senate was made when it
recommended the enoroval of heln~class ses nronosed by Dr. Croft. It seems
well therefore to recall the function of this Commit ee uh oh mskes resorts
necessary only occasionally.

lne Com Littee was established in 1922 under the title of a Committee
fc1 the Study of Ability er1d Tr iri 113 of tudents. An ext“ect f1 om its
aut l1orizat on states: 'The purnose is to provide a University group to

which nroblems concerned with the study of students within the University

. ..... .should be referred.......So far as its facilities may nermit, the

co mIittee shall be available for the executives, denertments, committees
and feculties of the University.’ Nineteen years ago this was not such a
ig undertaking as it obviously seems today. However, there was fortunate—
y e saving clause, 'so far _s its facilities may nermit'. Although the
undamentsl function of the UniVersity is to serve its students, in the
omnittee's early years no facilities for research on the extra.~cur riculer

the students were available excent on borrowed time.

With the inauguration of the University Personnel Bureau in 1930 some
additional nnortunities were nrovidel. The University Bures u has looked
to this Senate Committee as an advisory grout. The Committee has always
regarded its function to be nrimarily the study and nlanning of nronosed
student nersonnel services, not the administration of such services. This
is in conformity with the conceotion of 'nersonnel' as first used and for—
mulated by the Personnel Eesearch Bureau at the Carregie Institute of Tech~
nology and in the army. During the existence of the Committee there have
grown up various personnel services in the University, most of which resort
to the President or Deans and these have not come under the consideration
of this Committee. This uncoordinated growth may have been due to the lack
of aggressiveness on the part of the Committee, to absence of a center for
information on student nersonnel activities, or to failure to utilize the
Committee. On the whole, extr.~classroom services to the students have in—

creased and imnroved with comoeratively little dunl ication of effort.

BeCurse of toe no ccessary special training for Md mu to oers or nel work
and the fact that fccult3 members in the Detartment of Ps Cychology have
snecinlizefi in different tec hrical ohases of Dersonnel, there may have been
an unfortunate identification of certain Unive rsitv cars or nel services with
the Deoqrtment of Psychology. It sliould be clear that all members of the
Ln_versitv sh uld have the orivilege and satisfaction of service to their

students it both academic and oersonal ways. Any monopoly of such services

and counseling, the Chairman Drought the matter to the attention of to. [rt

President and a series of six meetings were held by a groun selected by n f
Dr. McVey. This became the most Careful study of the nroblems involved 9 d
which has been undertaken. In this group were Rrofessor Asher, Dean Bland- {W
ing, Professor Chamberlain, Dr. Chambers, Dr. Croft, Mrs. Holmes, Dean

Jones, Professor Miner and Dr. Ratliff, with President McVey presiding. f
Considerable nrogress was made in surveying the activities in which each i
office was engaged, discovering any difficulties, and reaching a better : l
understanding among all those concerned. i

It was recognized by the group that the nroblem of coordination was
fundamentally one of job analysis. The functions of the University in rela— i
tion to the students were defined. Each-member Drenared a statement as to

the services of his unit. Four sub-committees considered the functions of J 5?
records, testing, tutoring and counseling. A summary of the dunlication of :L

activities and the difficulties facing nersonnel coordination was nrepared.
While little friction or dunlication of effort was discovered, the groun

expressed its desire that a more careful definition of the resnonsibilities ilk

of each unit should be made and a olan be develoned toward which the Uni~
versity should work. Such plan should be set forth officially for the in- ‘ I
formation of the faculty and the students. It was recognized that nro- “1
gress must be interrelated to the other functions of the University and .E
that like other clans it must wait unon funds. Becuase of the nending re' l
tirement of Fresiden' HcVey no specific action was taken. 1

The Committee on Rules is an outgrowth of the work of snecinl commit~
tees annointed by President M Vey. After the governing regulations of the
University were formulated in the fall of 1917, a soecial committee was
annointed in January, 1918, to codify the Senate rules. In November, 1919, 3
another snecial committee, substantially the same as that of 1918, was
authorized to recommend revisions of the Senate rules. This committee be-

came the Rules Committee. . l


The Committee on Rules has carried through the work of reVi
1 . -, . . . . . - n F
rules for the Senate four times, the last rev1Sion being in 1930. Its


irmnn of tMlS Committee has made two snecial efforts to bring i

the University Senate - Anril 22, 1941

In order tnat the objectives and standards implied in the above reguls~
tions may be more nearly attained, the Committee makes the following

1. Every greduat ;udent should have a committee aooointed withe
s t

e s

in six weeks after hi firs enrolment in the graduate school.
This committee should function at once in planning the student's
graduate Drogrem.

2. The rule governing the numbering of

courses should be changed
to read that a ”100’ course 'may' be counted for graduate cred-
it subject to the enurOVHl of the student's committee and the
Dean of the Graduate School.

3. Qualitative standards should be established for admission to

the Graduate School.

4. The nresent rule requiring a 2-0 (B) average for a graduate
degree should be rescaled, and a standing of 1.8 substituted

5. Graduate teaching should be restricted to staff members who
are fully equipued by adVenced study, exnerience, and research

activity to give such instruction.

In other than exceutional cases a student should take the '100'


courses in his graduate nrogram of study before taking the
'200' courses.

II. The characteristics distinguishing graduate study from undergraduate


1. In other than exceptional cases a graduate course will be based
on some prereouisites in the denartment or closely related
. fields. It should. not, in other words, be made un of elemen-
‘ tary or beginning content.


2. The amount of time snent in recitation, laboratory, and study
should in general exceed that required in an undergraduate

3. Ordinarily the requirements of a graduate course will go beyond
mere lecture, recitation, and textbook assignments.

4. A graduate cour e slould require abilitf to do independent

The University Senate met in the Assembly Room of Lafferty Hall Monday,
May 12, 1941” President Cooper presided.

The minutes of April 22 were read and approved.

Professor R. H. Weaver read to the Senate the follOWing report of the Cure
riculum Committee:

"The College of Education has recommended the approval of Education
Egg. Teaching Consumer Courses in the High School (2).


By mistake the circular to the Senate asked approval of this
course for the 1941 summer sessiona According to a letter from Dean
Taylor to the committee the college had voted to request permanent
authorization. The Committee has considered this course, taking into
account, among other things, the recent recommendations of the Grad- g
uate Faculty concerning ocurse numbers. In the committee's opinion
it will be neceSSary to reconsider the numbering of courses already
in the University curriculum before these recommendations can be
