CM-10: The College of Staten Island College Council Records

 Collection
Identifier: CM-10

Scope and Contents

The College Council Records consist of meeting agendas, minutes and materials. Except for a few missing dates, coverage is comprehensive for the College Council. There is coverage of the activities of the standing committees in the meeting materials of the College Council, but there are no separate files for the standing committees, with the exception of those of the Executive Committee (1996-1999).

An agenda for a typical College Council meeting includes the approval of the minutes for the preceding meeting. As a result, a meeting’s minutes are filed with the meeting materials for the next succeeding meeting.

Dates

  • 1982-2005

Biographical / Historical

The College Council was formed as part of a new governance plan in spring 1982. The existing Faculty Council was folded into the College Council as part of the transition to the new system of governance.

According to the College of Staten Island’s 1990 Governance Plan, the College Council is responsible for “the formulation of policy relating to admission and retention of students, grading practices and standards, curriculum, degree requirements, academic freedom, cultural activities, and those aspects of campus life which relate to academic affairs and general educational matters.”

The College Council initially contained several standing committees including the Executive Committee, College Curriculum Committee, Committee on Course and Standing, Library Committee, Administrative Review and Evaluation Committee, and the Committee on Committees. In 1987, the Graduate Studies Committee and the General Education Committee were added to the existing standing committees. The standing committees are responsible to the Council, and periodically report to the Council.
