Creator:Northeastern University (Boston, Mass.). Administrative Committee of the Basic Colleges.
Title:Administrative Committee of the Basic Colleges records
Call Number:A93
Volume:0.35 cubic ft. (1 box)
Scope and Content Note:This collection documents the meetings of the Administrative Committee of the Basic Colleges during the period 1962-1971. The collection includes minutes, memoranda and other materials regarding topics under discussion at Committee meetings, such as sabbaticals, the activities of other committees including the Committee on Regulations and Discipline, enrollment issues such as incoming class and dropout statistics, class schedules, and the student strike of 1969/1970.
Historical Note:The Administrative Committee of the Basic Colleges comprised of the deans of the Basic Colleges of Northeastern University and met regularly to discuss issues pertaining to the administration and daily running of the colleges. The four original Basic Colleges were the College of Business Administration, the College of Engineering, the College of Liberal Arts, and the School of Law. In response to the academic community's demand for increased specialization, the number of colleges at Northeastern University was increased. The new schools included the College of Education (1953), University College (1960), the College of Pharmacy (1962), the School of Nursing (1964), Boston-Bouvé College (1964), the College of Criminal Justice (1967), and the College of Computer Science (1982). The Administrative Committee of the Basic Colleges expanded accordingly as the deans of the new Colleges were invited onto the Committee. They also worked to centralize faculty administration and keep the faculty fully informed of current issues on campus. Issues discussed at meetings included class schedules, sabbaticals, and student activities on campus.
