The Committees Records from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences contain correspondence, meeting minutes, reports, and membership rosters from various committees within the college. Materials range in date from 1935 to 1983.

First established as a distinct college in 1963, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHASS) represents the intellectual core of the university, though it has gone through a series of transformations throughout North Carolina State University’s history. The first English and History courses were offered in 1889, when the College of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts opened. It wasn’t until 1937 that the departments of English, Modern Languages, History, Sociology, Psychology, and Ethics were all grouped together under the Basic Division. In 1952, the Basic Division was replaced by the School of General Studies, which was also non-degree-granting. However, in 1963 it was renamed again as the School of Liberal Arts (SLA) and was authorized to award degrees. The School of Liberal Arts would again undergo a name change in 1977, becoming the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHASS). Then, in 1987, SHASS was one of eight of the university’s academic schools to be re-designated as a college, becoming the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. As of 2009, CHASS is the second largest college at North Carolina State University.
