Parsons School of Design governance collection 1912 – 2003

Collection, PC010101

About

Prior to 1970, when Parsons School of Design existed as an independent entity, it was headed by a president and a powerful Board of Trustees. Upon the merger of Parsons with The New School, legal authority transferred to a central Board of Trustees for The New School and the Parsons board became a Board of Overseers. The collection includes minutes and reports from before and after the merger with The New School. Subjects frequently addressed include financial expenditures and development, institutional growth, department curriculum, student achievement, and implementation of new technologies.
