MINUTES of THE MEETING
of the
BOARD OF TRUSTEES
February 15, 1968

Mr. Stevens offered the following resolution reaffirming the educational policies at Oakland University:

In January 1957 the Board of Trustees of Michigan State University accepted a gift of 1400 acres and $2 million from Mr. & Mrs. Alfred G. Wilson for the purpose of establishing an institution of higher education in Oakland County under the supervision of this Board.

Because of the unique opportunity to start with a fresh approach, this Board asked Mr. Varner, then Vice President at Michigan State University, to work with community leaders, key members of the Michigan State University staff, and national educational leaders in planning an appropriate program for this new campus. Out of this process emerged the educational program which is now conducted on the Oakland University campus. It has been built on a strong liberal arts base, with professional programs in engineering, science, education, business administration, and performing arts.

The development and progress at Oakland University have been pleasing to this Board and warmly endorsed by the community and by regional and national accrediting agencies and observers. This Board hereby goes on record to:

1) Reaffirm the educational policy established ten years ago for Oakland University, (2) commend the faculty, students, and staff for the progress made in these ten years, and (3) direct the officers and the faculty to continue on the present course of the orderly development of a high-quality University adequate to serve the expanding needs of the people in this rapidly growing area of Michigan.

On motion by Mr. Stevens, seconded by Mr. Thompson, it was voted to approve this resolution. Mr. White voted "No."

Communication from Mr. May:

I have received a communication from Mr. Stoutenburg, Assistant to the Chancellor at Oakland University, recommending that the Board of Trustees grant sewer easements through Oakland University property. Mr. Stoutenburg has this to say about the recommendation:

Oakland University and its campus planners have been included in the planning and discussion of this new sewer system and believes that it will be advantageous to the University as the campus develops to the south and southeast, to permit this construction on its property. It is the recommendation of Oakland University that the Board of. Trustees approve these easements including the one represented by Mr. Cooney (CO-16-216R), at their February meeting.

These easements, numbered CO-14-213R, CO-15-214R, CO-16-2158, CO-16-217, CO-17-228, CO-17-229, and CO-17-230, can be identified on the attached map which shows the route of the proposed sewer.

I would recommend that the Trustees approve the granting of the easements as requested, including the one identified as CO-16216R which is located on property on which the University holds an unconditional land purchase option.
