Advisory Committee on Mexican-American Affairs

In 1971 Joseph Soshnik, the President of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, started the Presidents Advisory Committee on Mexican-American affairs. This committee was created in response to the concerted effort of Mexican-Americans (Chicanos) within the University, and throughout the state of Nebraska at large, to establish a curriculum which would have at its core, the education of Chicano children.

In 1972 the committee changed hands. It would now be under the auspices of the office of Dr. James Zumberge, the Chancellor of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Here you will find the bylaws of the Chancellor's Advisory Committee of Mexican-American Affairs. Also, you can see the commnications bewtween committee members and the chancellor.
