The creation of a new University Council at Yale which shall have the authority among other things to co-ordinate the different schools is regarded as a fundamental step in the post-war reorganization of the University. The council will be composed of the administrative officers of the university, the deans, and the new division representatives.
The scope of this plan is best shown by a quotation from the Yale Alumni Weekly:
"The old separation of schools thus becomes a thing of the past; as does the separation of instructors in the various subjects of study. The council and the creation of special official committees to work out with the president the selection of men for the three new University offices established under the reorganization, and the schedule and ranking of professors for the new salary increase, represents rapid progress toward reconstruction ends, and brings into their settlement an experienced and very acceptable faculty personnel."
