Commission on Education, Graduate

Two commissions set up in 1961: the Commission on Graduate Education in the North American Division; the Commission on Graduate Education in Overseas Divisions. Primary functions of these two commissions were to guide and coordinate the graduate program in the denomination’s higher schools, to pass upon requests for curriculum expansion, and to make recommendations to the General Conference Committee pertaining to graduate work. The North American section was merged into the North American Division Commission on Higher Education in 1967. The Commission on Graduate Education in Overseas Divisions became what is known as the International Board of Education.
