Faculty Council

  • RG 498
  • Fonds
  • 1948-1969

In 1948 an Institute Council was formed, two years later it appears to have changed its name to Faculty Council. Then between 1958-1965 there does not appear to have been a Faculty Council, possibly replaced again by the Institute Council. In April 1965 the Institute Council was replaced once again when the Board of Governors officially passes a resolution for the formation of a Faculty Council consisting of the Principal (chairman), some senior administrative officials, departmental chairmen, 15 members of the teaching faculty (3 yr. appointments), and 15 representatives from various departments (3 yr. appointments). In the late 1960's the Faculty Council became the Academic Council. Academic Council eventually changed its name to the Senate.

Fonds contains general records and meeting minutes from the Institute Council and the Faculty Council. It also contains meeting minutes and associated records for two of the Council's committees - Physical Facilities and the "X" (Executive) Committee.

Institute Council: Minutes

It is difficult to ascertain the true nature of the Institute Council but it appears that it may have been an alternate name for the Faculty Council, which itself evolved into Academic Council in the late 1960s. Interestingly, the minutes of Faculty Council in the Archives contain gaps which correspond to the dates of the the Institute Council minutes in this sub-series. This may indicate that the equivalent of a faculty council was established in 1948 as the "Institute Council" changing its name in 1950 to Faculty Council. The Institute Council starts again in 1960 and runs until March 1965. In April 1965 the Faculty Council was formed and in a memo dated April 14, 1965 "The Faculty Council will replace the Institute Council in the Fall".

File contains memos and meeting minutes for the Insitute Council including 2 copies of the the first meeting minutes dated September 14, 1948.
