This collection contains the printed course catalogs for Dixie State University from its beginning as St. George Stake Academy in 1912 to Dixie State College of Utah in 2012 and the digital course catalogs from 2007 to the most recent academic year. The first catalog in the collection is from the school year 1912-1913 and has an academic year calendar, the Church Board, Stake Academy Board, executive committee, and faculty. The first catalog provides general information for students, including, fees, expenses, student resources, student conduct rules, and a list of the students who are attending. The following catalogs include class schedules, program requirements, financial costs, the academic calendars, and lists of faculty. Some of the catalogs include the lists of the students, short histories, and Presidents’ welcome, such as the one found in the 1988-1989 catalog.
The books are printed, ranging from approximately 10 to 400 pages, and are all soft bound. The majority are stapled together, but thicker catalogs are paperbound with a glue binding. A few of the later ones are spiral bound or comb bound. The last print version of the course catalog is from the academic year of 2012-2013, after which the catalogs were available only through Dixie’s website. This collection includes digital versions, mostly pdfs, of the catalogs from 2004 to the present school year. There are several missing academic years, including, 1911, 1914, 1915, 1916, 1995, and 1996.
