Transcript After the walkout, UHAS President Tom AAorey meets with architecture students to discuss the boycott. UHAS Raises Roof Over NAAB Report "How can the situation of 14 students working on a thesis in a 20 by 25 room be justified? What, in actuality, is the purpose of a laboratory fee? Why are other colleges getting facilities when the College of Architecture has its accreditation questioned because of lack of space? What action will be taken by the president and administration?" These questions were asked by architecture students last fall when UH's College of Architecture became one of the most controversial areas on campus. The college, one of the few accredited architectural schools in the country, was reviewed and given "provisional accreditation" by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. The NAAB felt that improvements should be made within the next two years or the college would lose its accreditation. The main criticisms of the board were lack of leadership, inadequate budget, insufficient space and unsatisfactory communications between students and administration. When the report was delivered early in September the dean refused to release it to students. They demanded to see the report and to know what they could do to help keep the college's accreditation. A copy of the report was finally released for student use in October. That same month Dr. John C. Allred, vice-president and dean of faculties, representing the administration, agreed to meet with students to answer questions. Students walked out of the meeting when they did not get satisfactory answers to their questions. They boycotted classes for one day, returning only when President Philip G. Hoffman agreed to meet with them. At the meeting with Hoffman the president announced the appointment of a nine-man advisory committee to review the college's status. Satisfied that action was being taken by the administration, relative calm returned to the campus. In December, Dean Richard Lilliott submitted his resignation. Now the only question that remains is, "Are the problems of the College of Architecture being dealt with properly?" This will be answered when the NAAB returns in the spring of 1968. 39
