Overview

Collection term projects in education submitted from 1948 to 1960 to the Graduate School of Education. The school became autonomous in 1966 and finally became the College of Education in 1986.

Historical/Biographical Note:

Lehigh University began its commitment to the study of education as early as the 19th century. A separate department including education was created in 1907. The study of education at the graduate level was added to Lehigh by 1911. As the years went on, Lehigh University continued to add more opportunities for pursuing the study of education for both undergraduates and graduates. An autonomous graduate school of education was established in 1966 and the programs received national accreditation in 1967. In 1986, the graduate school of education was changed to the present College of Education.

For Further information, in the Lehigh University Special Collections History Resources, an extended History of the College of Education is provided.
