Council of Presidents, 1928-1971

Collection Summary: The Council of Presidents is an informal organization of the current Presidents of the old Wisconsin State Universities which although without formal policy making powers, act as a group to influence the Board of Regents to adopt policies considered most appropriate for the welfare of the universities. In a sense, the organization has been in existence as long as the Normal School system, as communications between Presidents to effect agreements and strategy in order to influence the Board of Regents have been in existence as long as there have been presidents; the Council is still in existence today. Increased budget and building allocations, curriculum expansion, and salary increases have been among the Council’s goals over the years.
