    Scope and Content of Collection

    "The Gevirtz Graduate School of Education has its roots in professional work. Santa Barbara State Normal School of Manual Arts and Home Economics was officially established in 1909 as a successor to institutions which traced their roots to the early 1890s. In 1917 the school added a program to prepare elementary school teachers and changed its name to Santa Barbara State Normal School. In the 1920s the school changed its name again, this time to Santa Barbara State Teachers College, and initiated a four-year general education program for teachers, conferring its first Bachelor of Arts degree in 1927. In succeeding years the programs of the college expanded rapidly, the curriculum became more comprehensive, and enrollments included larger numbers of students who did not wish to pursue careers in teaching. These events led to designation of the school as Santa Barbara State College in 1935.
    "The College took its place as a campus of the University of California in 1944. Within a decade, the University outgrew its facilities on the Riviera and moved to its present site, which had been a military base during World War II.
    "The School of Education was founded as a separate unit in 1961, followed by conversion to graduate-level status in 1967. In the years since, the school has become a leading educational research center and has added several programs which prepare students for advanced specialization and disciplined inquiry while retaining its commitment to providing the state with a research-based model for teacher preparation.
    "In 2000 Ambassador Don L. and Mrs. Marilyn E. Gevirtz, longtime UC Santa Barbara supporters, made a $10 million commitment to support the excellence and visibility of the Graduate School of Education. To honor their generosity and dedication to promoting research and developing programs in education, the campus designated the School as The Gevirtz Graduate School of Education."
    The collection contains reports, brochures, flyers and other materials related to the school's programs, credentials, and events.
