Abstract

The SJSU Academic Senate Records, 1952-2004 (bulk 1970-1999), document the history and administrative responsibilities of the Academic Senate. The records consist of general, administrative and committee files, budget reports and correspondence, as well as newspaper clippings and audio tapes. The records also include files from the Academic Council, the forerunner to the Academic Senate. In addition, the Academic Senate files document the departmental and program controversies in the Economics and Athletic departments in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as the Koehmstedt civil rights case, which challenged the university's accommodation policies for students with learning disabilities. This collection is arranged into two series: Series I. Administrative Files, 1952-2002 (bulk 1970-1999); and Series II. Economics Department, 1974-1979.
