Accreditation records

  • RG 20
  • Collection
  • 1959-2010

Accreditation reports submitted to both the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and to the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) provide a tremendous amount of insight into Art Center's curriculum, financial health, and administrative policies. Both draft and final versions of self studies detail such information as enrollment statistics, curriculum development, finances, education and experience of the faculty, and campus facilities (including the Library). In addition, reports filed by the accrediting agencies after site visits are also illuminating. The bulk of the material relates directly to Art Center, but two items are more general: an accreditation report which assesses its influences on universities and colleges in the West by Keith Warner for WASC (1977), and a directory of National Schools of Art (1978).

In June 2009, the name of the lecture series changed to The Big Picture.

The R. Thomas Schorer papers consist of correspondence, clippings, and cartoons from his time at Art Center as a faculty member and Trustee, 1980s-1990s. The correspondence, much of it photocopies, are letters and memos about Art Center from faculty, administrators, and the Board, including those documenting student unrest over rising tuition and costs. Of note are Virginia Legakes Adams's letters addressed to President David R. Brown and the Board giving her opinions on the state of the school.
Also included in this collection are political cartoons that have been photocopied and altered to comment on the Art Center administration and clippings from Los Angeles area publications about Schorer, Art Center, and its alumni. There are a few memorials for former Art Center faculty, as well as black and white photographs of Schorer and fellow Art Center faculty members Jim Jordan and Wally Bennett.
