Scope and Content

There are ten series and sub-series in this record group. The largest of them is the Self Study series which has several sub-series each representing the year of the self-study. These years include: 1993, 1987, 1981, and 1965. Self-studies or accreditation reports prior to 1960 are located in the University Record Group. This is because prior to 1960, the school was only able to grant degrees in education. Thus an accreditation for education prior to 1960, was an accreditation that effected the entire school.

Other series in this record group reflect the departments in the School of Education. Most often these are small series and the materials are departmental minutes and the date range is generally early to late 1980's. The publications series contains material produced within the School of Education and relevant to more than one department.

Administrative History

Since Edinboro University's conception it has been a school for teaching, originally as Edinboro Academy, then, shortly after, as the Northwestern State Normal School and then as Edinboro State Teacher's College. The oldest surviving University catalogue is from 1870-1871. There were 10 faculty members and the goal of the school was to give "thorough and systematical instruction in all branches of learning taught in Common Schools." Graduates of the school received a Degree of Bachelor of Elementary Didactics. Given this history, it is not surprising that an Education Department is not listed separately until the 1919-1920 Catalogue. In the 1925-1926 University Catalogue, still under the Education Department, there are listed separate curricula for Elementary and Junior High Education. In the 1970-1971 Catalogue it is listed as the Elementary Education Department under the School of Education and it's offices were soon placed in the newly erected Butterfield Hall.
