Faculty Decision

Faculty Decision on May Demonstrations

The Faculty Executive Committee's response to student demands including a copy of the student resolution and partial sample of the "W&L Free University Forum". In the face of an overwhelming student resolution and national wave of student strikes, the faculty voted to continue classes but to allow any student who so wished to accept an Incomplete in his current classes to be replaced by a grade on completion of the work for the course by September 30, 1970. The faculty and students reached a compromise in the midst of nationwide unrest on college campuses.
