File: Future Arrangements of the College

Scope and Content

Correspondence and papers relating to proposals for the development of the College and transfer of non-university work to local institutions. These include details of sub-committees appointed to consider the regional implications of the transfer of courses and to make arrangements for the reorganisation. A conference was held in October 1954 with representatives from the University of Manchester, local education authorities, public bodies and industrial organisations to discuss the development of the College with Manchester City Council. The papers contain the draft constitution for a Court of Governors and Council for the College, a draft Charter and Petition.
