The Graduate Council records contain the proposal for creating a Graduate Council in the University of San Diego School of Graduate and Continuing Education as well as meeting materials and minutes for the Graduate Council dating 1991-1996.
The School of Graduate and Continuing Education Graduate Council held its first meeting in the spring of 1991. Proposals for the creating a Graduate Council pointed to the 1982 and 1987 WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) recommendations that a Graduate Council be created in order to ensure adequate support for the graduate programs at the University of San Diego. In December 1990, a Graduate Council of six members was established. Membership included one faculty member from each of the Graduate Schools (Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, and Nursing), the Dean of the 'lead' school for the year, and the Graduate Dean. The purpose of the Graduate Council was to provide an avenue for communication between faculty and administration regarding issues facing the graduate colleges. The Council discussed such issues as graduate courses, policies, programs, student financial aid, and library support.
