Commission for Blacks Founded
Chancellor Archie Dykes formed the Task Force on Blacks in January 1973 to assess the status of blacks on campus. The Task Force was charged with thoroughly studying black involvement in all university programs and activities. Consisting of faculty, staff, and 12 students, the task force compiled information from academic departments and colleges and interviewed campus administrators to complete their assessments. The commission continues to serve as a recommending body to the chancellor.
