Student Governance

  • S-009
  • Serie
  • September 1971 - March 1991

Series consists of materials pertaining to student government at Douglas College.

These include agendas, minutes, and supporting documents from early DCSS governing bodies such as the Douglas College Student Council (sometimes called the Tri-Council), the Mult-Campus Council, and the Senate. There are also records related to provincial and national organizations such as the Association of Student Councils Canada, the British Columbia Students Federation, and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges.

This series also contains materials related to the creation of the DCSS, The Other Press, society elections, student handbooks, clubs, professional development, social events, and more. These materials include correspondence, memoranda, nomination papers, reports, flyers and posters, questionnaires, draft constitutions and amendments, and ephemera.

Because the DCSS was represented on a number of college-wide boards, committees, and advisory councils, the Student Society possessed a number of related records such as agendas, minutes, and supporting documents. Although duplicate materials were culled from the Archives in 1986, this series retains records related to the activities of the Principal's Council, the New Westminster Campus Advisory Council, the Management Committee, and several other smaller committees.

Committees of the Board

  • S-021
  • Serie
  • 1968 - 2012

Series consists of materials pertaining to the standing committees of the Douglas College Board and its predecessor, the Douglas College Council. Committees of the Board exist to provide greater investigation and recommendations related to governance issues and functions for which the Board is responsible such as finance, human resources, facilities, curricular planning, and development.

During the institution’s early years, several committees existed within the College Council to oversee key functions like those mentioned above; however, it was not until February 1975 that four were formally recognized by Council as standing committees: the Finance Committee, Program Development Committee, Building and Sites Development Committee, and Personnel Committee. These were later joined by a committee which focused on community relations and public promotion of the College.

Following the College's split into Douglas and Kwantlen in 1981, and a subsequent administrative reorganization which resulted in a smaller membership, the College Board determined it could no longer operate with the same number of standing committees. The Board's chairman and vice-chairman were tasked with developing a proposal for a new board committee structure. Ultimately, they proposed two committees: the Finance, Facilities and Personnel Committee and the Education and Services Committee. The former was an amalgam of three existing standing committees while the latter was a successor to the Program Development Committee. The Community Relations Committee was not replaced by an equivalent body until the creation of the Community Relations Development Committee in 1984.

Although there were several changes to names and responsibilities, most committees of the Board reflected the original functions of their earlier iterations throughout the 1980s and 1990s. In the early 2000s, the Education Committee and the Community Relations/Board Development Committee were disbanded, as their roles had been increasingly co-opted by other committees. And more recently, a Technology Strategy Committee existed for seven years (2014-2021) before also being disbanded.

The records in this series primarily consist of meeting agendas, minutes, and supporting documents such as correspondence, memoranda, reports, financial statements, and planning materials.

I-CARE Literacy Program

  • S-001
  • Serie
  • 1977-2020

Series predominately consists of published materials by the I-CARE adult literacy program: the group's newsletter and later its annual publication featuring student writing. This series also includes additional textual records related to I-CARE's creation and early years, its operations, and various events.

The first I-CARE newsletter was launched in January 1979. It was called "The Nameless Newsletter" and was edited by Sheila Taillefer and Linda Ellwood. By July of that year, the newsletter was simply titled "I CARE", which would remain in place until the fall of 1982 when it was renamed "Breakthrough". Early editions of Breakthrough contained event announcements, meeting agendas and minutes, photocopied articles, information resources for tutors, crossword puzzles, activities, and artwork and graphics. The newsletter's tagline was: "A newsletter published for literacy volunteers in the Douglas College region." However, by the 1990s the target audience of the newsletter had expanded to include learners as much as tutors. In the September 1992 issue, Breakthrough started including a section called "Writing For Our Future" which featured short written works by students from the program. (Writing For Our Future was the name of a stand-alone, annual publication by I-CARE featuring student writing. It was launched in 1990.) Breakthrough has been published on a monthly and later quarterly basis, uninterrupted until the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in winter 2020.
