Scope and Content

The collection contains correspondence to and from the Provost's Office, as well as meeting minutes and agendas from the General Education Committee and information on the Provost's Council. The folders titled "Memorandums" contain correspondences as well as memorandums. The documents originally arrived dumped loose within boxes and appear to the working files of three administrators in the Provost's Office. An attempt was made to try to maintain the original order when possible but the disarray of the files made that difficult at times. Also, there were multiple duplicates of many of the documents and only two copies of each were kept.
