Biographical/Historical Note

Appalachian has nearly always offered education courses (beginning as a teacher's college) and officially established the College of Education in 1968 along with the restructuring of academics in the process of becoming Appalachian State University. The college was named for Lois Reich, a longtime educator in Davidson County, North Carolina. Reich College of Education (RCOE) currently houses six academic departments, offering a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, including a doctoral program: Curriculum and Instruction, Family and Consumer Sciences, Human Development and Psychological Counseling, Leadership and Educational Studies, Reading Education and Special Education and the Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership.

Scope and Contents

The Reich College of Education Records contain mostly administrative files from the College of Education and the Dean's Office including correspondence, curriculum planning, self-studies, policies and procedures, proposals, budgets and memoranda. Additionally, the records contain other studies, Teacher Education Council minutes, files pertaining to teacher accreditation, files pertaining to grants, workshop materials, field experience documents, and videos regarding elementary school teachers in the classroom. The files date 1953-2003, which predate the establishment of the College of Education, but many of the files date to the first 15 years of the college, 1968-1983.
