Grand Valley State College. Second Collegiate Society Study Group


Administrative History

A Study Group formed in 1966 to create a 'second collegiate society' to give students a choice of a less formal, more personalized academic program. The second phase of this decentralized, cluster college organization was initiated in 1968 as School of General Studies (CGS), later renamed Thomas Jefferson College (TJC) in 1969. This program of instruction offered a B.A. or B. Phil. degree. Its curriculum and methods of instruction emphasized interdisciplinary studies and independent projects. The Society was administered by a committee of faculty members and representatives from other college divisions. Its chairman reported directly to the Vice-President of Academic Affairs.
