Series 5: Committee Records, 1746-2000 April 15
Collection Description & Creator Information
The minutes document the Board of Trustees' concerns with overall policy and administration of the University. The other records provide context to the minutes, in the form of background material, especially correspondence and reports. They also provide information on Trustee actions taken through their appointed committees but not necessarily recorded in the minutes.
Series 5 is subdivided into nine subseries, each containing the records of a particular Trustee committee: curriculum, finance, honorary degrees, grounds and buildings, graduate school, library, nomination, university affairs, and miscellaneous committees, and arranged chronologically therein.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
Appraisal information was not recorded at time of processing.
The University Archives appreciates the generous support of the Society of Colonial Wars in the State of New Jersey who underwrote preservation efforts on the University Charter.
