Collection Outline

Digital Archives

See Centre College Digital Archives - Faculty for digitized versions of selected items from the following inventory

Collection Description

Faculty Records is a compilation collection consisting of faculty/committee correspondence, minutes, reports, policy statements, self-studies and other miscellaneous materials. Only the minutes of the faculty have survived virtually intact from 1860 (previous minutes were lost in the great Danville fire of 1860) and constitute the most important and most informative series in this collection. Together with the minutes of the Board of Trustees, they are without doubt the most vital records of the College. Also of interest are the minutes and reports of Council III (Curriculum) for their deliberations over the significant curriculum changes in the late 1960's; which concern co-ed residences and visitation policies, fraternity hazing, drugs and alcohol, counseling services, and student rights in general.
