Abstract

The Office of Institutional Research was created in 1966 to provide research data to the general administrations. Through the advancement of computer technology, the amount of data produced by the Office has expanded greatly. Each year they produced a Fact Book which chronicles data about The University. This collection consists of correspondence, reports, and spreadsheets related to departmental profiles, student data profiles, self-studies, an archive of the department's website, and other topics which document the activities and duties of the Office of Institutional Research from 1962-2015.

Offensive Language Statement

The UNC Greensboro University Libraries collects, preserves, and makes accessible unique and historical materials for learning and research. The nature of historical materials is such that some material may represent positions, norms, and values that are offensive and objectionable. These materials represent the opinions and actions of their creators. By providing access to these records in our reading room and through our digital collections, we recognize that archives and rare books can play a vital role in holding those creators accountable and in helping us learn from the past.

Our finding aids and other collection descriptions may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context. That said, we recognize that we may not always make the right decision and welcome feedback from all sources so we can learn and adjust our practices. Please contact us at scua@uncg.edu if you encounter problematic language in our finding aids or other collection description. We will review the language and, as appropriate, update it in a way that balances preservation of the original context with our ongoing commitment to describing materials with respectful and inclusive language.
