Minutes of April 1965 CCNY "Special Committee"

One week after CCNY President Buell Gallagher obtained faculty approval for its creation, he sat in on this “Special Committee” meeting chaired by Bernard Levy to begin to plan a new racial and social justice admissions and support program that would draw applicants from the communities surrounding City College. In practice, the actual planning of the program quickly fell to three professors: Allen Ballard, Bernard Sohmer and Leslie Berger. Ballard and Sohmer are listed in attendance at this meeting. The efforts of the group ultimately contributed to the creation of the CUNY-wide SEEK program in 1966 following a CCNY-specific program the prior year.
