Salient: Victoria University of Wellington Students' Newspaper. Vol. 32, No. 6. 1969.
The NZUSA Easter Council unanimously affirmed that students must participate in the administration of their universities.
Another motion also passed unanimously stated:
1. That at least two student representatives should be on all organs of university administration with full voting rights:
2. That on Student Union building management committees, student members should be in a majority. The initiative in moving these motions was taken by Auckland's Vice-President, Mike Law
A motion was also passed that the Education Vice-President of NZUSA prepare a comprehensive report on the state of student participation in all sectors of university administration on the basis of details to be supplied by constituents, together with an objective critique of the situation at each university.
Speaking to this, Law emphareport on which has been achieved—not what should be done. He said that student representatives in Auckland did not want student power, not even on sub-committees — all that is needed is someone to move and second motions so that they can be brought forword for discussion.
Reports from constituents will cover what the students involved think their gain mean in terms of power, what might be accomplished, and what may never be accomplished. The question will be taken up again at the August Council of NZUCA.
