Brigham Young University. General Services
General Services (1972-1979) functioned to administrate over a variety of services offered by the university.
General Services was formed in 1972 in a reorganization of the earlier Auxiliary Special Services. The Assistant Vice-President for Business acted through General Services in order to administrate Agricultural Operations, Auxiliary Maintenance, Auxiliary Special Services, the BYU Bookstore, Food Services, and Purchasing. General Services was also responsible for providing management and skills training programs, necessary safety programs, and to coordinate food and housing needs for summer conferences, as well as coordinating university services to the Language Training Mission (1972-1979). In 1979 the department merged with Student Housing to form Housing and General Services.
Heads of the unit included Rulon G. Craven (1972) and Clyde Bair (1972-1979).
