Administrative history

In 1981 Blaine Holmlund was appointed to a new administrative position: Vice-President (Special Projects). That office was responsible for initiating major projects; assisting Deans and faculty in implementing intercollege programs; preparing annual budget submissions and multi-year budget plans; campus-wide computer and communications services; the University Studies Group, physical plant operations, A-V services, college reviews, and student services. In his 10 December 1985 report to Council, President Leo Kristjanson noted that "because of a perceived uncertainty about the boundaries of responsibility indicated by the title VP Special Projects, the title has been changed to VP Planning and Development." The responsibilities of the office remained relatively unchanged. BA Holmlund continued as VP (Planning & Development) until his retirement from the University in 1991.
