Executive Officers' Meetings,  1988-1989

The Executive Officers Meetings sub-subseries, 1988-1989 (1.5 linear feet), is arranged chronologically and includes agendas, background materials and action summaries. The background materials, i.e., those reports and memos which are read by the officers prior to the meeting, are often very informative. The meeting summaries can assist the researcher in documenting the actions taken at the meetings. These records provide good insight into the issues which high-level administrators believe are the most pressing faced by the university.

Diversity Initiatives

The Diversity Initiatives sub-subseries, 1990-1997 (3 linear feet), contains the records, reports, and proposals of the presidential initiatives to support diversity and multiculturalism at the University of Michigan. The 1997Climate and Character Report assesses the progress of two diversity initiatives: the Michigan Mandate, which promoted the inclusion of under represented minorities in the academic community, and the Michigan Agenda for Women, which promoted equal opportunities for women on campus. The file also contains the records of the Michigan Agenda for Women for 1995-1997 and the Michigan Mandate for 1990-1997. Most extensive in the Michigan Mandate materials are proposals and evaluations for the President's Initiative Fund in 1990-1991. Diversity Initiatives also includes proposals, evaluations, correspondence, and clippings for the President's New Century Fund for Diversity in 1997, a fund for creating programs to accelerate progress towards diversity at the university. In addition, the series contains meeting minutes, reports, and recommendations from the Council on a Multicultural University for 1993-1997.
