Biographical or Historical Information

The Florida State University President's Executive Committee was created during the early 1970s. According to the Faculty Handbook for that period, it was composed of the President, Executive Vice-President, the Vice Presidents for Academic Affairs, Administration, and Student Affairs; University General Counsel, Executive Assistant to the President, and Director of University Relations. The Committee met regularly at a time scheduled by the President to discuss any matters the President and the Vice Presidents wished to bring before it. By 1974, the Executive Committee no longer existed. That year, it became the Administrative Council, with a broader representation of campus administrative officials.
