Historical Note

The UTA 1972-1973 Self-Study was formally initiated in Spring, 1972, for presentation to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in the process of its ten-year reaffirmation accreditation as a senior institution. Jack R. Woolf was the self-study director. Members of the University Committee on Committees served as the Steering Committee, which, in turn, oversaw the work of the eleven Standards Committees: Purpose, Organization and Administration, Educational Program, Financial Resources, Faculty, Library, Student Personnel, Physical Plant, Special Activities, Graduate Program, and Research.

Departmental studies committees were also formed, made up of faculty from each department. The subject matter of the departmental self-study paralleled that of the institutional self-study. Copies of the departmental self-study reports may be found in Series B of the collection; however, these reports were not included in the final published self-study.

Scope and Contents

Correspondence, minutes, self-study reports, charts, manuals, lists, roster, booklets, and notes. Files of J. R. Woolf; and records of the steering committee; the standards committees; and the departmental committees. Includes a supplement which is a review of the self-study by faculty organizations, 1974, and printed copies of the university self-study as well as the separate departmental self-studies.


The collection is organized in two series:
  • Series A: Institutional Self-Study
  • Series B: Departmental Self-Studies
The files in Series A are arranged sequentially: general or introductory material first, then steering committee files, followed by files for the standards committees, and at the end of the series records of the Southern Association Visitation Committee and a published copy of the reports of the eleven standards committees, The University of Texas at Arlington Self-Study, 1972-1973.
Series B contains the self-study reports compiled by each academic department. The folders are arranged in alphabetical order.

Processing Information

AR139 originally consisted of 2-1/2 manuscript boxes of processed material, primarily departmental self-studies. In 1992 two shipping crates (4 linear feet) of unprocessed 1972-1973 self-study records were found. This unprocessed material was heavily weeded. The remaining records, which largely concerned the institutional self-study, were added to AR139 (See Series A). The inventory was partially rewritten to incorporate the additions.
