Administrative history

The history of summer instruction at the University dates back to 1920 when the institution sponsored Summer School for Teachers. In 1922 the program expanded to become University Summer Session and offered a broad range of courses. The Summer Session Students' Association at UBC was established in 1925 to promote academic and social interaction amongst participants in summer session. The term "Students'" was dropped from the title of the organization in 1953 in an effort to broaden its focus. A weekly Bulletin kept members informed of all campus events (most of which were sponsored by S.S.A.) and other useful information. The Association also provided funding for scholarships and interest-free loans. In 1994, the Summer Session Association was dissolved and its activities taken over by the Alma Mater Society.
