Language of Materials



The Faculty Council has been extant at UNCG since its beginning, and was the main legislative body for the faculty. In 1991, because of a change in faculty governance, the Faculty Council was abolished and the General Faculty was created to take its place. The collection of the UNCG Faculty Council is comprised of 10 boxes of materials, and is almost entirely composed of minutes and agendas from Faculty Council meetings.

Method of Acquisition

The records for 1895-1949 were transferred to the University Archives by the Office of the Registrar. They remained in classed archives until joined with the records for 1950-1972 sent from the Office of the Chancellor in September 1984. The records for 1972-1991 were taken from the records of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. In February 2006 the Office of the Registrar transferred additional records dating from 1949 to 1991 and those records were merged with the existing records.

Accruals and Additions

Minutes - including related agendas and memoranda - are received on a continuing basis.

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may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context.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