In a sense, the organization has been in existence as long as the Normal School system, as communications between Presidents to effect agreements and strategy in order to influence the Board of Regents have been in existence as long as there have been presidents; the Council is still in existence today. An increased budget and building allocations, curriculum expansion, and salary increases have been among the Council’s goals over the years.
