Record Groups

The University’s records are organized by Recrd Groups.  These Record Groups have been created to reflect the administrative and academic arrangement of the University.  Below are two options for viewing Record Group arrangements.  The first Record Group option describes the current physical condition of the collections housed in the Archives.   The second Record Group option describes the arrangement of administrative and academic departments.  Given that the University continues to grow, departments and offices merge and new programs are established, the Archives is in the process of bringing the original Record Group arrangement to accurately reflect the current organizational chart for the University (2009).

Some Inventories are now available.  Inventories of each department’s records currently housed at the Archives will be available soon.
