Histoire administrative

In 1974 Sir George Williams University (SGWU) and Loyola College merged to form Concordia University, and existing Fine Arts departments were consolidated into a newly established Faculty of Fine Arts in June 1975. By the time of the merger, both of Concordia University’s founding institutions had responded to the desire for more expansive and accessible education for the artist. Loyola College offered a number of film studies courses in the Department of Communication Arts and formal studies in music and drama in the new Department of Fine Arts established in fall 1973. SGWU’s profile with respect of Fine Arts was stronger, the Department of Fine Arts had been established as early as 1960 and there were already two master programs (Art Education and Studio/Art History). The establishment of the Concordia Faculty of Fine Arts was authorized by the Board of Governors on June 14, 1974. Its first Dean was Alfred Pinsky. The Faculty Performing Arts (Music and Theatre Arts) were grouped at Loyola Campus and the Visual Arts (Studio Arts/Art Education, Art History, Cinema) at SGW Campus. In 1981 the Faculty of Fine Arts was reorganized and existing Divisions of Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Graduate Programs were replaced with formally created departments of Art Education; Art History; Cinema and Photography; Design; Music; Painting and Drawing; Printmaking; Sculpture and Crafts; and Theatre. Later on, some of these departments were reorganized and renamed.

Historique de la conservation

Some files in the fonds predate the establishment of the Faculty of Fine Arts in 1975 which are records of the Department of Fine Arts of Sir George Williams University. These records were created by Alfred Pinsky, first Dean of the Faculty, when he was the chairman of the SGWU Department of Fine Arts.

Portée et contenu

The fonds documents the activities of the Office of the Dean and some academic departments, mainly for the period of 1975 to 1995. The fonds includes the administrative records of the Council of the Faculty. It also includes the records (4 boxes) of the Permanent Review Committee on the Status of Women of the Faculty Council which existed between 1984 and 1994.

The fonds consists of reports, correspondence, minutes of meetings (such as Deans and Chairs meetings and Council committee meetings) and some photographs and audio visual materials mainly on University events.
