Abstract:

The College of Graduate Studies collection consists of meeting minutes, course proposals, records of the Graduate Research Conference, their publications Tomorrow and Frontiers, and other materials produced by the college.

Historical Note:

Graduate education began at Mankato State Teachers College in 1953. The program was initially called Graduate Study, but this changed in 1970, when the program became known as Graduate School. In 1980, the program was called the Graduate College, and by 1987, the program was called the College of Graduate Studies. The first master degree, a Master of Science, was typically a teaching degree. In 1968, there were only a few programs that offered masters degrees, some of which were fifth or sixth year degrees. As of 1992, there were sixty-four different programs to earn a master's degree in. In 2009, the college held its first Graduate Research Conference to display the research of the college graduate students.

This information is from the collection and Claire Faust, Mankato State University: The Second Century: The First Twenty-five Years: 1968-1992.

For more information about the current College of Graduate Studies, see their website at: http://grad.mnsu.edu/home.html.

Scope and Content:

The College of Graduate Studies collection consists of their meeting minutes, course proposals, the Graduate Research Conference, their publications Tomorrow and Frontiers, and other materials produced by the college.

This collection is divided into five series.

Graduate Council/Graduate Sub Meet and Confer Minutes: This series contains the meeting minutes for Mankato State Teachers College through Minnesota State University, Mankato for the College of Graduate Studies. There are also meeting minutes from the State Teachers College System, which became Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU). To differentiate between the two meetings, the meeting minutes from the university will have MSU at the end of the title, and the minutes from the State Teachers College System will have STCS at the end of them. In September 1974, the MSU Graduate Council Minutes changed to the Committee on Graduate Academic Programs. This remained until April 1976, when the minutes changed to just Graduate Studies. In December 1976, the group became known as the Graduate Sub Meet and Confer.

Graduate Course Proposals/Program Proposals: This series contains the course proposals submitted to the College of Graduate Studies. On these forms, a field of study can propose a new course, a change in the number of credits the class is offered for, a name change for a particular course, change the course number, or withdraw the course from being offered. Course had to go through this process to be approved by the College of Graduate Studies and the Curriculum Committee. This series also includes different program proposals that departments submitted for the committee's approval. For some of the years, all the course proposals are in the same folder and not divided by department.

Graduate Research Conference: The Graduate Research Conference is held in April of the academic school year. This conference highlights graduate research and began in 2009.

Graduate Studies Publications: The College of Graduate Studies has two publications. Tomorrow began in the Spring 2005, and is published on a yearly basis in the Spring. Frontiers is published three times a year, Spring, Fall, and Winter, beginning in Spring 2007. Frontiers is now available online at http://grad.mnsu.edu/research/frontiers/.

Subject Files: This series contains information from the College of Graduate Studies that does not fit into any of the above categories. There are final reports about self studies, information about submitting thesis and alternate plan papers over the years, Outstanding Thesis Awards, and other miscellaneous reports and records.
