Since 1950 there has been disagreement between the State University of New York and Syracuse University as to the status of Forestry students and the scope of legal powers exercised by the Board of Trustees of the College of Forestry. Syracuse has maintained that (1) Forestry students were dually enrolled in Syracuse University and the State University of New York, and (2) that the right to determine the proper status of Forestry students was vested in the Board of Trustees of the College of Forestry. The officials of the State University of New York have taken a contrary position, and hence the issue has been joined for the past five years. The attached documents contain the views expressed by Syracuse University in its efforts to clarify its position in this matter.
