Biographical/Historical Note

In November 1971, the Institutional Self-Study Steering Committee made recommendations to the schools, departments, and other groups on the Georgia Tech campus to carry out intensive self-studies and produce written reports, to be completed by July 1, 1972. A summary report encompassing all campus sectors was to be produced by November 1972. The purpose of the reports was to provide statistical information, short- and long-term goals for each of the departmental groups. A similar self-study took place in 1982 through 1983, in preparation for the visit of the Visiting Committee of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) in March 1984.

Scope and Content Note

This collection includes memoranda and other correspondence, minutes, guidelines and manuals, as well as copies of self-study reports from various campus constituencies, both for the 1972-1973 and the 1982-1983 campus-wide self-studies. Some material on a self-study from the early 1960s is also found in this collection.
