Minutes of Proceedings: Establishing Community College Number Seven

In these minutes of proceedings from a January 22, 1968 meeting of the Board of Higher Education, the Board resolves to create the "Committee to Seek Presidents for Community Colleges Seven and Eight." The committee is first tasked with filling the presidential vacancy at Community College Number Seven, though its function would later be expanded during the college's development process. The meeting also calls for an amendment to the "1964 Master Plan for the City University of New York" to include the goals for the proposed college. These objectives include the new college's proposed common first semester, community-orientation, and admission procedures. Also mentioned are estimated operating budgets and facility requirements.
