Academic Council

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Collection number: UA-19-2-0

Scope and Contents

The Academic Council was a group of faculty who approved all changes to the academic program of Valdosta State College.  This group predates the Faculty Senate and ended with its founding and assuming of those duties. The collection includes minutes and "actions" of the Academic Council from 1978-1991.  The "actions" are forms submitted to the committee, often with correspondence, requesting changes to the curriculum.  Actions also include announcements of changes made by the committee, which announcements serve as notices of changes in policy.  The minutes, on the other hand, are shorter, list attendees, and simply note passage or not of specific "actions."  The actions and minutes are filed separately from 1978 to 1984, although there is some intermixing of the two.  After 1984, no papers exist in the Collection until 1988.  From 1988 to 1991, both minutes and actions are filed together.
