In 1967, the University at Buffalo reorganized its academic structure with the restructuring of the College of Arts and Sciences into Faculties. The following year, the University submitted an Academic Master Plan to the State University of New York Office of Long Range Planning. The Plan dealt “…with general directions for this University Center. It also contains summaries of the individual plans of each of the seven Faculties and of University College, Millard Fillmore College, and The Graduate School” (Memorandum from President Martin Meyerson to University faculty, March 29, 1968, 1.1, 3/8/332).
In the Plan, Meyerson describes the mission of the University at Buffalo as “being three-fold: to improve dramatically the processes of learning, to further scholarship, and, through research and teaching to serve and aid in the solution of the problems of our society and in the achievement of its potentials….the University has the responsibility not only to create and impart knowledge but also to apply it drawing on the intellectual resources of the past, the present and future throughout the world. Universities are unique in this role” (Campus Academic Plan, page 1, 1.1, 3/8/332).
