Historical Note

On June 1, 1940, in response to increasing demands upon the President's Office, President Herman B Wells created the position of Dean of Faculties. The initial duties of the office were to share with the president "general responsibility for the academic administration ofthe University" as well as sharing the responsibility for public appearances.

Today the office of the Dean of Faculties is responsible for overseeing various aspects of the faculty position and the curriculum at Indiana University. Its duties include: evaluation of applications for sabbatical leaves, review of dossiers for promotion and tenure, negotiation of individual grievances, analysis of recommended terms of appointment to assure conformity with university policies, review of all proposals for curricular and degree program changes on the campus, administrating policies affecting Associate Instructors, and administration of the Patten Foundation and Horizons of Knowledge lectureships.

Since 1940, the position of Dean of Faculties has been filled by the following people:

               Herman T. Briscoe        1940-1959
               Ralph C. Collins         1959-1963
               Ray L. Heffner, Jr.      1964-1966

Scope and Content Note

The Dean of Faculties collection is comprised of the administrative files of the Office of the Dean of Faculties at Indiana University. The collection is arranged alphabetically by subject and spans the years 1968-1989. It is divided into three distinct series reflecting the dates of deaccessioning by the office of the Dean: 1968- 75, 1975-80, 1980-89. Since the Dean of Faculties collection originates from a file that is ongoing, span dates are approximate and only refer to the majority of material in each series. Collection number 24 contains the second series, 1975-80. However, collections 23 and 25 should be examined to insure thorough research.

The subject files document the Office's involvement in almost every facet of the daily operations of the university. Within the collection are correspondence files for each school and department. These include: School of Music, School of Law, School of Business, School of Education, and College of Arts and Sciences and its individual departments.

Files can be found on virtually every academic program and university service. A few of the more prominent entries include: Academic Computing, Calendar Committee, Budget, Instructional Development, Fellowship, International Programs, Review Committee, Research and Graduate Development, student services and programs, and University Division.

The collection also contains various files of administrative policies and procedures concerning faculty members. These files cover such areas as: promotion and tenure, recruitment, retirement, salaries, complaints and grievances, affirmative action, review committees, research, etc.

The Office of the Dean of Faculties also oversees curriculum development and various academic administrations. File topics include: Admissions, Degree Program Proposal Committee, Associate Instructors, foreign language requirements, grading policies, registration, etc.

Chronological files for several individuals of the Office of the Dean of Faculties can also be found within the collection. These include files of both staff and administrators. The following names are represented in the collection: Frank Franz, William Lynch, Margaret Jean Peterson, and Stephen L. Wailes.
