Administrative history

The Division of Life Sciences was established in 1972 with the objective of drawing together life scientists from across the campus into a body which could effectively and efficiently coordinate training in the basic life sciences. It served as a forum for faculty dialogue between colleges, allowed for campus wide "vetting" of courses proposed by colleges and departments, and allowed comment on the hiring of faculty who might have interdepartmental teaching responsibilities. The division did not grant degrees. Students were to register in one college and could choose classes offered elsewhere on campus. The Division was disbanded in 1983 as a result of a referendum of the general membership. The following served as division head: W.G.E. Caldwell (1972-1973); J.D. Wood (1973-1975); J.M. Naylor (1975-1978); B.D. McLennan (1978-1979); J.M. Naylor (1979-1981); P.H.G. Stockdale (1981-1983).
