Collection Description & Creator Information
8.049 email messages
The Office of the Vice President for Campus Life Records contain internal emails, reports, minutes, spreadsheets, and other office files that document the activities of the office from its inception in the early 21st century and through its first decade and a half of existence. Topics that are particularly well documented in the collection include student health, campus protests, athletics, drug and alcohol usage, residential life, sexual misconduct, religious life, and fundraising for new initiatives or centers, such as the LGBT Center.
The majority of the collection was created and used in various computing environments, including an office-wide networked folder and an email account owned and used by the office's second Vice President, Cynthia Cherrey. The types of files represented include textual/word processing documents in the form of correspondence, memoranda, reports, minutes, and agendas.
See the description notes for each series and subseries for further description.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
Appraisal has been conducted in accordance with Mudd Library guidelines. The records in Series 1 were appraised using the output of the software application Digital Record Object Identification (DROID), resulting in roughly 2/3 of the records being selected with archival value.
During accessioning, the following four folders were deleted from the folder "Janet Smith Dickerson - Archive" in Subseries 1B. "/Recommendations" was deleted due to the presence of FERPA-protected information pertaining to student performance. "/JSD - including Bios and Recommendations/JSD, address lists and personal" was deleted to the presence of personal information pertaining to Dickerson's private life outside of her role at the University. "/Correspondence (stewardship ltrs)/Recommendation Ltrs" was deleted due to the presence of FERPA-protected information pertaining to student performance. "/Correspondence (stewardship ltrs)/External" was deleted due to the presence of FERPA-protected information pertaining to student performance.
