Language of Materials



On July 1, 1970, the title Associate Dean's Office was changed to the Office of the Dean of Academic Advising. Reporting to the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, the Office of the Dean of Academic Advising was responsible for the coordination and supervision of all matters relating to academic advising. This included working with faculty advisers, academic advisers, deans and department heads. The office was also responsible for maintaining and safeguarding the student's records while the students were enrolled.

Orientation and pre-registration for new students were planned by this office, as well as administering special academic programs, such as Junior Year Aboard, Cooperative Education, admission into student teaching, Scholars Teas, and the Merrill-Palmer Program.

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may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context.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