Materials were transferred from the DCSS to the Archives in 1984 and 1985.
Scope and content
Series consists of materials pertaining to student government at Douglas College.
These include agendas, minutes, and supporting documents from early DCSS governing bodies such as the Douglas College Student Council (sometimes called the Tri-Council), the Mult-Campus Council, and the Senate. There are also records related to provincial and national organizations such as the Association of Student Councils Canada, the British Columbia Students Federation, and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges.
This series also contains materials related to the creation of the DCSS, The Other Press, society elections, student handbooks, clubs, professional development, social events, and more. These materials include correspondence, memoranda, nomination papers, reports, flyers and posters, questionnaires, draft constitutions and amendments, and ephemera.
Because the DCSS was represented on a number of college-wide boards, committees, and advisory councils, the Student Society possessed a number of related records such as agendas, minutes, and supporting documents. Although duplicate materials were culled from the Archives in 1986, this series retains records related to the activities of the Principal's Council, the New Westminster Campus Advisory Council, the Management Committee, and several other smaller committees.
