History

The California State University System, formally established in 1960 by the Donahoe Higher Education Act. It is the nation’s largest university system, with 23 campuses and seven off-campus centers, more than 400,000 students and 42,000 faculty and staff. The CSU is one of three public higher education systems in the state of California (the others are the University of California and the California Community College System). Since 1961 more than 2 million alumni have received a bachelor's, master's, and doctoral (Ph.D. and Ed.D) degrees from the university system. It offers more than 1,800 degree programs in some 240-subject areas.
Today's California State University system is the direct descendant of the California State Normal School (now, San Jose State University) established by the California Legislature on May 2, 1862. By 1895 there were four State Normal schools. In 1921, the schools were re-named the State Teacher’s Schools. In 1935 the colleges were re-named the California State Colleges and were run by the State Department of Education. With the master plan created along with the Donohue Act, the California State Colleges were placed under control of the CSC Board of Trustees. In 1972 the system was renamed the California State Colleges and Universities. The term "Colleges" was dropped in 1982.
Responsibility for the California State University is vested in the Board of Trustees, whose members are appointed by the Governor of the State of California. The Trustees appoint the Chancellor, who is the chief executive officer of the system, and the Presidents, who are the chief executive officers of their respective campuses. The Academic Senate of the California State University, made up of elected representatives of the faculty from each campus, recommends academic policy to the Board of Trustees through the Chancellor. Chancellors of the system include Buell Gallagher (1961-1962); Glenn S. Dumke (1962-1982); W. Ann Reynolds (1982-1990); Ellis E. McCune [Acting] (1990-1991); Barry Munitz (1991-1998); Charles B. Reed (1998- ).

Scope and Content

The collection comprises coded memoranda (1960-2000) issued by various departments and units within the California State University Office of the Chancellor. Each department within major divisions of the Chancellor's office used the coded structure in their dissemination of policy and procedure to the campuses. Most campuses filed such correspondence consecutively and indexed them appropriately, thereby making it easy to find the memorandum for reference. All divisions used this type of coding structure until the early 1990's, when it was discontinued by some. Other units within the Office of the Chancellor continued to generate coded memoranda. By the late 1990s, a number of the units still generating coded memos began distributing the information exclusively in electronic format and, as is the case with some offices, made the documents accessible in full text on the CSU Web site. Indices organized alphabetically by the office or unit within the Chancellor's office which generated the memos. Offices generating memoranda include Academic Affairs, Academic Planning Improvement, Auxiliary Business Services, Budget Planning, Business Affairs, Continuing Education, Educational Programs and Resources, Executive Vice Chancellor, Faculty and Staff Affairs, Faculty and Staff Relations, Institutional Relations, Library Affairs, New Program Development and Evaluation, Physical Planning and Development, Public Affairs, Student Affairs and many other offices.

Arrangement

Presently arranged alphabetically by office in 81 series.
