Language of Materials



This record series contains materials reflective of the Academic Dean Office’s relationship with the various divisions and with the office of Continuing Education and Extension. Topics covered include curriculum, general education requirements, sabbaticals and leaves, salaries, tenure, and other personnel issues. Materials are organized by division and chronologically but are otherwise unstructured. Materials consist of agendas, announcements, brochures, correspondence, invoices, memoranda, minutes, notes, reports, and vouchers. Of special note are the records from the Education Division on the "Health Fitness" major (file labeled “Education—Health, 1984-85, 1985-86); the early plans for HFA Building contained in the file, “Division of Humanities, 1970-71;” miscellaneous materials on retrenchment (“Humanities, Miscellaneous, 1981-82 and 1982-83;” the smattering of memos and correspondence congratulating faculty on publications, awards, leaves, etc.; the scattered copies of “Ideas, Idêes, Ideen,” a journal featuring student writing published by the foreign language disciplines (in various Humanities Division files Box 2); the files on the journal, "Midwest Studies in Philosophy" and the "Midwest Philosophy Colloquium;" the rather slender folders on the establishment and early years of the Geology discipline; the published report, “Follow-Up Studies of the Graduates of the University of Minnesota, Morris from 1980 to 1987” in the file labeled “Placement, 1989-90;” and the ample materials, including meeting agendas and minutes, on Division Chairs meetings.

Key words: "Health Fitness Major," "HFA," "Divisions," "Divion Chairs," "Philosophy Discipline," "Midwest Studies in Philosophy," "Midwest Philosophy Colloquium."

Misfiled materials

In August 2012 materials originally filed as A5, Division of Education, were transferred to this record group and series. These are materials having to do with the Division of Education and Teachers' Training but they clearly had originated in the Dean's office.

In July 2013 materials originally filed in A1-K-j, Executive Groups, were transferred here to box 7. These are files having to do with the Executive Group.
