Abstract

This collection consists of annual reports, departmental files, and subject files from the College of Arts and Sciences, Office of the Dean.

Historical Note

The first courses in Arts and Sciences were offered by the University of Buffalo in 1913 and by 1915 the College of Arts and Sciences was given departmental status. Between 1967 and 1998, the University at Buffalo reorganized its schools and colleges into faculties. Among these were the Faculty of Arts and Letters, the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Social Sciences and Administration. In 1998 the university again reorganized, reestablishing many of the former schools. It was then that the departments which belonged to the Faculty of Arts and Letters, the Faculty of Social Sciences and Administration, and the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics were combined to form the College of Arts and Sciences. For more details on the history of the College of Arts and Sciences, please ask for the College of Arts and Sciences history file.
