Faculty Handbooks and Manuals, 1946-Ongoing. GACA Collection 32. 2 Records Center Cartons and digital media.
The Faculty Handbooks and Manuals collection consists of materials starting in 1946. Although mostly complete, some dates are missing especially from the late 1940s and 1950s. Modern editions contain documents governing the College, a Faculty Manual, and a Faculty Handbook, as well as sections for faculty committees, general information, and various policies. The Dean of the College prepared the first handbook in 1946. After 1958, production shifted to the Committee on College and Faculty Publications. Later, the Committee on Faculty Activities oversaw creation of the handbook/manual. Amendments were made in part by a committee of the Faculty Senate, and the Faculty Secretary distributed revisions to replace outdated pages. Entire new manuals have been distributed occasionally.
