"A Procedure suggested for coping with the Present Emergency"

This notice, created by Queens College's Biology Caucus, proposed the creation of an interdepartmental, college-wide committee comprised of full-time faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates. As the document notes, it was the hope that this committee might arrive at a satisfactory decision to resolve the college's ongoing crisis between students and the administration. Student demonstrations and sit-ins were regularly planned between March and May 1969, with tensions on campus remaining particularly acute during that period.
