File concerning disciplinary procedures for UMIST students. The content of the file mainly concerns the revision of disciplinary procedures for UMIST students. Disciplinary matters were traditionally the responsibility of a sub-committee of Senate, whose powers extended to UMIST students. In the face of significant issues of student discipline in the late 1960s, the UMIST authorities requested greater autonomy in handling disciplinary issues, particularly relating to non-academic offences. The file comprises correspondence between the V-C, Principal of UMIST and the University's lawyers, Tatham, Worthington and Co. regarding these issues.
