Administrative History

The historical background and full significance of the University Council is not known. It is believed that the University Council worked in conjunction with the University Senate in an advisory and/or administrative capacity. A series of other bodies, the Council of Administration, the General Council, the Administrative Board, and the General Administrative Board were also believed to have worked with the University Senate in a similar capacity. However, it is not known if each of these bodies was a separate entity with a unique name, or if they are all the same body called by various names, or if the advisory body's name was officially changed periodically.
