Office of the Vice Provost for Academic and Enrollment Services Records

 Collection
Identifier: UA 0020.1

Scope and Contents

The Office of the Vice Provost for Academic and Enrollment Services Records consists primarily of reports, correspondence, memos, and other papers.

Included are correspondence, statistical reports, and a draft report of an admissions study conducted in 1975. The study was undertaken as a result of discussions of the Admission Policies Committee and in response to subsequent concerns about enrollment pressures. The draft report was titled "Undergrade Admissions to UNC-G: A Review of Recent Policies and Data" and was written by Herbert Wells in October 1975.

In 2009, the duties of the Associate Provost for Enrollment Services were added to the position. See UA 20.4 (Office of the Associate Provost for Enrollment Services Records) for more records related to this role.

These papers reflect the increased administrative responsibilities of the Office of Academic Affairs, especially as a result of federal laws and mandates of the 1970s.

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may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context.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.
