Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Michael D. Eisner College of Education Collection consists of the records of the college, and previous education courses offered throughout CSUN's history. Records include correspondence, accreditation reports, annual reports, department meeting agendas, program brochures, event fliers, newsletters, handbooks, course information, and histories of the college and education in the San Fernando Valley.
Education courses were first offered in Northridge in 1955, with the establishment of the college campus as a branch of Los Angeles State College. The Division of Education offered credentials and master's degree courses largely in elementary education, and was the largest division on campus. In 1958, when the campus separated from Los Angeles State College to become San Fernando Valley State College, the Division of Education began offering additional courses to train secondary school teachers. The Division was reorganized in 1964 to become the School of Education, with departments in Educational Administration, Psychological Foundations, Elementary Education, Secondary Education, Social and Philosophical Foundations, and Special Education. In 2003, the School of Education was renamed the Michael D. Eisner College of Education in honor of a donation made by The Eisner Foundation.
