Education Committee

  • DCA061
  • Entidad colectiva
  • 1996 - 2000

In January 1996, the Education Committee was established as the successor to the College Board’s Education & Services Committee. Initially it maintained many of the same responsibilities as in its previous iteration but with a new emphasis on providing a link between the College Board and the Education Council. By 1999, much of the Committee’s responsibilities were set out in the College and Institute Act, which had become legislation in 1996. The Committee endeavoured to clarify and foster the link between each of the College’s governing bodies, reviewing information and advice the Board received from the Education Council. The Committee also reviewed matters requiring joint approval of the Board and the Education Council, and it carried out any responsibilities delegated to it by the Board.

The Education Committee was discontinued in 2000 following a re-evaluation of the Board’s committee structure.

  • Entidad colectiva
  • 1984 - 1990

The Community Relations Development Committee was established as a standing committee of the College Board in April 1984. Its purpose at that time was “to provide a focus for and an overview of policies and programs to enhance public information, community resource development and college-based community development activities.” Later that year, fundraising activities was added to the Committee’s terms of reference. The Committee also provided recommendations to the Board and served as a liaison with College administration regarding issues related to public relations.

In November 1990, the Committee’s name was changed back to the Community Relations Committee.

Finance Committee [original]

  • DCA051
  • Entidad colectiva
  • ca. 1970 - 1981

When it was formally established as a standing committee of the College Council in 1975, the primary function of the Finance Committee was to advise the Council and Administration on significant financial and business matters, present recommendations on the disposition of financial documents, and make recommendations on proposals related to major financial decisions. The Committee was also tasked with reviewing drafts of the College’s operating budget, capital needs and the capital budget, financial statements, and voucher lists.

In 1981, following the split between Douglas and Kwantlen, the Finance Committee (by then a committee of the College Board) amalgamated with other committees to become the Finance, Facilities and Personnel Committee.

Program Development Committee

  • DCA058
  • Entidad colectiva
  • ca. 1970 - 1981

Originally called the Curriculum Review Committee prior to being established as a standing committee of the College Council in 1975, the Program Development Committee’s primary function was to review program proposals and to present reports and recommendations to the Council (and later the Board). These reports and recommendations were related to new, revised, or discontinued programs; educational priorities; innovative systems of instructions; admission policies; and instructional requirements for planned physical facilities.

In October 1980, the Program Development Committee’s name and terms of reference were modified slightly. It became the Program Review & Development Committee.

Douglas College Board

  • DCA002
  • Entidad colectiva
  • 1979 -

The Douglas College Board (more often referred to simply as the College Board) was formed in 1979 as the result of passage of the College and Institute Act. Under the legislation, colleges became corporations and their councils became boards. The composition of college boards no longer required representation from school board officials, but otherwise the powers and responsibilities of the board were largely were largely unchanged.

The Douglas College Board acts on behalf of the public, and oversees the affairs of the organization (including property, revenue and expenditure), performing duties aligned with the College and Institute Act to support proper administration and advancement of Douglas College. The board focuses on policy and strategic leadership rather than administrative detail.

The first board chairperson was Helen Casher who held the position from 1979-1981.

Douglas College Student Society

  • DCA017
  • Entidad colectiva
  • 1972-1999

The Douglas College Student Society (DCSS) was incorporated in 1972 under the Society Act with a mandate to represent and protect the rights and interests of students. The makeup of the Society's executive membership has changed over time, but typically included a President, Vice President(s), Secretary, Treasurer, and campus- or program-specific representatives. At different times in the history of the DCSS, the records of the Executive were collected by a staff person who was also responsible for the management of Society business/administration.

When the DCSS was formed it represented students from three campuses: New Westminster, Surrey, and Richmond. For this reason, the earliest governing body of the DCSS - the Student Council - was also sometimes called the Tri-Council. By 1979, five additional campuses were also being represented by the DCSS: Coquitlam, Langley, Maple Ridge, Agnes Street, and Newton Centre. Consequently, the DCSS's governing body became the Multi Campus Council. In the early 1980s, following the College's split into two separate institutions, the DCSS updated its Constitution and its governing body was reorganized as the Senate. Rather than a campus-specific focus like its predecessor, the Senate used a model of representation based on areas of study.

In 1992, DCSS membership voted to leave the Canadian Federation of Students, only to re-join the national organization six years later. In 1999, the DCSS underwent a restructuring in which it was renamed the Douglas Students' Union (Canadian Federation of Students, Local 18).

Charter of Rights Committee

  • DCA025
  • Entidad colectiva
  • 1986 - [1990]

The Charter of Rights Committee was originally formed in response to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom's main equality provisions coming into effect in 1985. The Committee's purpose was the creation of a cross-divisional project to integrate teaching of the Charter into the College's curriculum. An announcement in a January 1987 edition of the Mad Hatter newsletter stated: "The Charter has the potential to bring about profound change in the community and as a teaching institution and a community college we must be actively involved in fostering understanding, initiating community discussion, and preparing our students to participate in the shaping of their society."

The Committee oversaw the creation of a course (IDST 100 Human Rights and Canadian Society: Multidisciplinary Perspectives), which was offered from 1989 until at least 2006.

Records of the Committee cease after April 1990.
