Northwestern University (Evanston, Ill.). Board of Supervision of Student Activities

 Organization

The Board of Supervision of Student Activities was established by action of the University Council on November 6, 1920, and held its first meeting on January 22, 1921. Its purpose, as defined by the Council, was "to promote and direct student enterprise and social life in the Evanston schools of Northwestern University and to insure uniformity of administration."

The Board was charged to "supervise the social calendar for the Evanston schools and those student enterprises, with the exception of intercollegiate athletics, in which participation is open to the students in the several Evanston schools, or which affect in common the students in the Evanston schools. To this end the Board shall have power to enact ... necessary rules and regulations governing student enterprises, to administer said regulations and to pass upon petitions of organizations open to students in the various schools." The Board's membership included four faculty members from the College of Liberal Arts and one faculty member from each of the other colleges and schools on the Evanston campus.

The Board of Supervision of Student Activities was abolished in 1939, and its functions taken over by the Student Governing Board and the newly established Council on Personnel Work.
