The Boards Councils and Committees Records consist of files generated by university wide groups and include everything from an ad hoc task force report to long runs of minutes from committees central to the university's academic mission.  This Record Group (UA17) is broken into four series.  The first holds records from a broad array of committees, most of which no longer exist.  There are records here, however, from a number of committees still active and important, some of which relate to the University Council.

The University Council's Executive Secretary's subject files are found in series two, Faculty Senate records in series three, and records from Presidential Commissions are in series four.
