Responses by the administration to each of the submitted demands follow. 1. Black Dean of Men Politics may suggest that we should pretend at this point to be responding only to your demand in effect leading you to believe that we are conceding to your demand. To do so would be dishonest. We, therefore, feel compelled to provide background information, which points to the recognition for and progress toward obtaining personnel to work in the areas and meet the needs which your demand for a Black Dean suggests. Prior to the incident on January 27 involving Mr. Robinson, decisions had been made by Weber State College Officials to add one or more black individuals to the College faculty and to other positions where they could be of service to our students.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
