Presidents Advisory Committee on Mexican-American Affairs 1971- 72

 

University president Soshnik started an advisory committee on Mexican-American affairs in 1971. This committee advised the president until the committee changed to the auspices of the office of the chancellor. In 1972 Chancellor Dr. James Zumberge took responsibility for the committee. Communication between the committee members, President Soshnik and Chancellor Zumberge leave a trail of evidence that sheds light on the issues and decisions which would eventually lead to the Chicano Studies program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
