Scope and content

The general purpose of the Faculty Senate within Kansas State University is to facilitate faculty participation in the establishment of university policies and in the formulation of procedures for their interpretation. For the policies to remain useful they are delegated to sub-committees established by the Faculty Senate, responsible for a certain set of procedures and policies and filtering it from the Senate to the faculty. The Faculty Senate Records collection contains minutes and agendas from most of these committees. Along with minutes and agendas, this collection contains course and curriculum changes from proposed or already existing courses. Lastly it also contains general office files from Faculty Senate and from prior Faculty Senate President, Jerry Freiman.

System of arrangement

This collection is arranged into 6 different series; Faculty Senate Meeting Records (1952-2016), Academic Affairs Committee (1969-1972), Administrative Records (1967-1992), Executive Committee (1956-2012), Faculty Affairs Committee (1967-2005) and Faculty Senate on University Planning (FSCOUP) Committee (1986-2002)
