George Mason College
Fairfax (Va.)

Description

After the Virginia General Assembly's designation of George Mason College as a four-year degree-granting institution in March 1, 1966, a number of key studies were done by and on behalf of George Mason. Each implied greater expansion of and eventual independence from the University of Virginia for George Mason College.

The 1968 Educational Plan proposed to divide the student body into six cluster colleges of 2,500 students each. A college would be oriented toward a particular discipline, and would contain teaching space, dormitories, and a student union to serve the students in that particular college. Professional programs, such as business, engineering, nursing, and education would join traditional academic ones, and the Northern Virginia Center of the University of Virginia at Arlington would be moved to George Mason in Fairfax. Later it would eventually become part of future George Mason University.

Contains 46 pages, spiral-bound.
