Conclusion

From 1954 to 1984 - five Vice Presidencies - order out of the initial inchoate assemblage of functions. The road was not always even, and in fact at times quite bumpy, but the institutional commitment to meeting the needs of students never faltered. For a period of years methodology was severely tested as various digressions were explored and generally found wanting. With but slight functional adjustments, this span of thirty years represents a continuity of purpose.
