History

The Advisory Committee on Bachelor of Science in Education for the Evening College and Summer Session was created in 1915 for the purpose of establishing requirements and recommending degree candidates for students in the University's part-time programs. In response to demands from part-time and summer students, the Board of Trustees decided to offer the Bachelor of Science in Education degree to students who successfully finished their College Courses for Teachers or Summer Session program. The Advisory Committee, composed of administrators and faculty members, was created to supervise regulations and procedures for awarding degrees. In 1916, two additional evening programs were added: Courses in Business Economics and Night Courses for Technical Workers. Although the three evening programs were administered separately, the Advisory Committee governed the granting of degrees for all three, plus Summer Session.

The president of the University, as chairman of the Advisory Committee, usually presided over the meetings, which took place three to four times per year. The director of the College for Teachers served as secretary and was responsible for carrying out the Advisory Committee's resolutions. Edward F. Buchner was secretary from 1915 to 1929, and was succeeded by Florence E. Bamberger, who served from 1930 to 1946. In 1947, the Advisory Committee was discontinued due to the consolidation of the three evening programs under McCoy College.
