Primary and Secondary Items

Any papers or digital records generated or received by the administrative and academic offices of the college in the conduct of their business--including all official printed material, reports, record books, minutes, committee files, financial records, correspondence, and associated papers--are the property of the college and may become archival material. The definition of college records shall also extend to forms other than paper, such as prints, photographs, microfilm, motion picture film, audio and video tape, any electronic data, and machine-readable records.

Materials with primary value are included in our collections. Some examples of primary materials are: 

  • Academic records 
  • Annual reports 
  • Calendars 
  • College-related correspondence, papers, publications, and speeches
  • Financial records and audits
  • Legal decisions and cases
  • Minutes of meetings
  • Local Greek organization archives
  • Handbooks, directories, manuals
  • Student government papers and publications

Some materials with secondary value are also included in the archives. Examples of secondary materials:

  • Artifacts and memorabilia, including furniture, souvenirs, postcards, and posters
  • Personal papers of donors, administrators, faculty, trustees, and alumni that are not related to college business 
  • Publications of faculty 
  • National Greek organizations materials
This is by no means an exhaustive list of materials retained or collected by the Archives.
