Historic Preservation and Archaeological Conservation Advisory

The purpose of the HPACA Board is to provide advice to the president on matters related to historic preservation and archaeological conservation. The board's primary responsibility will be to review the University's plans to alter or demolish the interiors or exteriors of historic buildings (over 50 years old) on campus; to preserve and protect archaeological resources on campus; and to provide advice on matters related to historic preservation and archeological conservations. The board will meet at least three times per year and will work closely with the University Architect and the Vice President for Administration on these issues.

The board is comprised of up to seven appointed members with the University Architect and Vice President for Administration providing staff support. The seven members will include four faculty members, a non-faculty member from the W&L community, and up to two "outside" members who are interested and knowledgeable. The latter members may include alumni and/or respected members of the historic-preservation, archaeological, and professional architectural communities. Members serve staggered, two-year terms and the chair is appointed by the Provost.
