Abstract

The Division of Continual Learning (previously known as the Extension Department and the Office of Continuing Education/Summer Session) was formed in 1913 for the purpose of providing educational opportunities for the people of the community who were unable to attend university as traditional students. Though, at its inception, it focused on the development of domestic sciences, the department continued to evolve over the years and began providing a variety of services through credit and noncredit programs. What is now known as the Division of Continual Learning has been instrumental in the further education of nontraditional students. The collection contains 21 boxes of material, including dozens of taped UNCG lectures and Symposia.

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may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context.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