Councils and Institutes
The following councils have been created to coordinate and foster interdepartmental teaching and research in certain important areas. Each council develops programs and activities appropriate to its responsibilities. Effective in 1971 the councils were authorized to propose appointments to the faculty for limited duration or on a part-time basis. They may also propose related courses within the curriculum. Thus the councils may supplement existing offerings or take the lead in exploring new and promising areas. The Committee on Humanistic Studies acts for the Council of the Humanities when proposing such appointments or courses.
