Biographical/Historical Information

The University College, founded in 1933, became successively the Evening Divisions, 1953-1978; the Division of Continuing Education, 1978-1983; then once again the University College of Continuing Professional Education in 1983. During the period represented by the bulk of these records, 1980-1985, the Dean of the College (or Division) reported to the Assistant Provost. A few records from the tenure of Dean Richard Lang (1969-1972), and Dean Martha Luck (1972-1977), are part of this series. Dean Corley first became Assistant Dean of the Evening Divisions in 1974, then Dean in 1976. Her tenure ended in 1985; Donald E. Collins succeeded her.

These records of Ellen Corley, Dean of the College of Continuing Education, primarily relate to three areas of activity of the College. First are Dean Corley's correspondence and materials created in the general operation of the dean's office during her tenure as Dean from 1976 to 1985. Second, financial and/or class registration records include comprehensive data from the operations of the College since 1963. The third category comprises subject files from various courses, workshops, and other programs offered under the aegis of the College during Dean Corley's administration. These constitute the bulk of the records.

Note that most of the files contain a mixture of correspondence and memos, reports, class registration lists, program schedules, publicity, and financial information, working papers and other notes. Files have been relabeled to enhance access.

The files have been grouped into the three aforementioned categories of 1) Dean's Office correspondence and general files; 2) financial/registration records; and 3) courses and programs. Records in the first category are arranged alphabetically by folder title, and chronologically within folders. In the financial/registration category the summary reports are placed first, followed by various yearly and monthly reports in descending order of summarization, and lastly working files. Records of the third category (courses, programs, etc.) have been grouped alphabetically by sponsoring organization or topic, then chronologically within. Groups covered include the Business/Professional Advertising Association, the Dental School, library management, Midwest Women and Business, and the National Society of Fundraising Executives. Following that are folders relating to a group of miscellaneous sponsoring organizations and/or courses, arranged chronologically.
