Student Affairs/Student Services, 1950s-1980s, is a history of five vice-presidencies. This is a history identifying a movement toward a concept and structure of the university community more responsive to the needs and character of post World War II students and the sophistication and pluralism of the twentieth century. The history of Student Affairs is a movement not unlike that which grew out of the post World War I pressures which led to the appointment of the first Dean of Students and the general development of a framework of Student Affairs. It is a movement toward an intelligible and orderly University campus community responsive to some kind of direction as to housing, discipline, vehicular use, social/recreational programming, supervision, counsel and the like.
