Administrative History

The College of Human Development and Learning is one of the predecessors of what is at present (in 2018) the Cato College of Education. An education program existed at Charlotte College, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s forerunner, as far back as 1957. By 1969, four years after Charlotte College became UNC Charlotte, the university was organized into academic divisions, one of which was the Division of Education. In 1971, the divisions were reorganized into colleges, and the Division of Education became the College of Human Development and Learning. Fourteen years later, in 1985, the college was renamed College of Education and Allied Professions, a name it kept for ten years until restructuring caused another title change, this time to College of Education in 1995. In 2017, the Cato name was prefixed to the title.

The College of Human Development and Learning included the departments of Educational Leadership and Instruction (currently Educational Leadership), Human Services, Health and Physical Education (currently Kinesiology), and the Army ROTC (Military Science) and Air Force ROTC (Aerospace Studies) programs.

This information was compiled from the Charlotte College and University of North Carolina at Charlotte Catalogs and legacy archival description.

Processing Information

The records in this collection were received in three accessions and were initially processed as three separate collections. In March 2018, the three original collections were merged into a single collection.

Files were kept in the physical order in which they were originally processed. One accession that had been inventoried as subject files was split into the following series at the time of merging: Minutes; Proposals; and Studies, Reports, and Conference Programs. The other two accessions were each made a subseries under the series University Year for Action.

There is no Folder 3 in Box 2.
