Scope and Contents

The collection includes the minutes of the Faculty Senate meetings from its inception in 1974 as part of Texas State College, continuing through that institution's evolution into Texas Eastern University (1975-1979) and finally into the University of Texas at Tyler (1979-present).  In addition to meeting minutes, the collection includes correspondence and Senate communications as well as some Senate committee documents.  Following the 1996-1997 academic year, the only records of the Faculty Senate currently housed in the Archive consists of the minutes of the Faculty Senate meetings.  Prior to that time, notebooks or files kept by the Faculty Senate presidents during their tenure provided the basis for the ultimate organization of this collection as well as a more detailed picture of Senate activities.
