In the process of selecting the new deans, each school elected its own screening committee of faculty, with every department represented. The committees established their own criteria for selecting the candidates and then recommended final candidates for each position to the administration. The administration then met with studentbody government officers for additional reactions and input. The resultant recommendations then went to the WSC Institutional Council for final approval.The organizational changes resulted from several previous studies conducted by faculty and administrative committees and many months of consultation with other key faculty members, administrators and the Executive Committee of the Institutional Council.

|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.|
