Cooper Union Archives Collection of Policies, Rules, By-Laws and Guidelines

Spanning the years 1872-2016, this collection contains an assortment of policies and guidelines from the various schools of which Cooper Union is comprised, as well as more general policies and bylaws affecting the entire college. While a variety of policies and time periods are represented, significant gaps indicate that this collection is not a complete catalog of all Cooper Union policies, by-laws and guidelines from its inception on.

Biographical / Historical
The Cooper Union opened in 1859 as a free school offering day and night courses in science and engineering along with an all-female school of art. The structure of these programs evolved over the years, e.g. the Women's Art School merged with the architecture courses to become the co-ed School of Art in the 1930s. The various courses on offer would eventually settle into three schools - art, architecture, enginnering - each offering undergraduate degrees. The Cooper Union of today also offers coursework to support graduate degrees in architecture and engineering, as well as a continuing education program.
