Collection Description & Creator Information
The records of the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students contain correspondence with other administrators and students, memoranda, press releases, subject files of clippings and notes, pamphlets, and brochures. Some of this material is duplicated in other University Archives collections. The records primarily document the Dean's supervision of student organizations and participation on committees; however, some files are dedicated to disciplinary infractions, athletics, or other topics which pertain to students. Prior to the creation of the office, the Dean of the College overaw these matters; therefore, some material originating from the Office of the Dean of the College was subsequently transferred to the Dean of Undergraduate Students and has been included with these records.
Please see series descriptions in contents list for additional information about individual series.
