ECTC Archives: ECC Event Calendars

Description of ECTC archives holdings; a brief history; finding aids; images

Overview

The event calendars span the academic years 1974/75 to 1998/99. The calendar templates were created and numbered by hand; entries were typed into the templates. The pages were then photocopied, collated and stapled by hand, and distributed to personnel and departments. 

There are a few gaps in the collection, and some missing pages from the calendars. The types of events and reminders included vary from year to year. UK games were included in calendars of the late 80s and 90s; ECC basketball games were emphasized in earlier calendars. Titles and language changed; meetings that involved administrators, division heads and department supervisors took place under a variety of headings. The faculty forum gained importance in the 80s, occurring several times each month. Faculty were expected to spend several days, at the beginning of each semester, attending workshops and meetings. By the late 80s both faculty and staff were expected to attend one or two days participating in in-service activities at the beginning of the year.

The years 1997/98 and 1998/99 were pivotal ones. The fall 1997 pages show that UK system committees and groups continued to meet; by the winter such activity is declining. By the fall of 1998 system committees and groups meet under the KCTCS designation.
