Historical Note

The bulk of this collection was created during the late 1990s, a period of time when major civil rights and anti-war activities had subsided as the 1991 Gulf War flared and ended quickly. "In loco parentis" had faded away but the new policies were still subject to interpretation and implementation. The campus of the University of St. Thomas, Houston's Catholic university, was generally a conservative and therefore subdued place of study and worship. Education and employment were the concerns of the 1990s.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The materials within this collection were collected during the 1979-2007 time period. Materials include: agendas, annual reports, an apostolic constitution, budget authorizations, budget requests, calendars, contacts, correspondence, economic models, enrollment reports, graphs, a job description, meeting minutes, occupancy reports, an organization chart, policy drafts, projections, questionnaires, a resume, sales of class rings, sales reports, security reports, statistics, survey results and an undergraduate catalog.
