Faculty Senate Merger

Categories: Topics

In the Spring 1981 a first in higher education was achieved by establishment of a single faculty constitution for two separate and distinct faculties of two universities. On January 23 and February 7, 1981 respectively, Indiana University and Purdue University gave their official blessings to the single faculty senate created by a new faculty constitution. For 17 years the two faculties operated independently although located in the same building administratively and on the same campus.
