  • Staff Only
The Records of the Task Force on the Undergraduate Experience fill two boxes and span the years 1983-1988, with the bulk of the material dating between 1987 and 1988. The folders are arranged in alphabetical order by subject. Records within each folder are arranged in chronological order by date with the undated material at the back of the folder.

Folder titles reflect committee and focus group work (data, correspondence, clippings, and reports), research projects (correspondence, questionnaires and responses, survey questions, and narrative descriptive findings of the surveys) and other topics (often including data gathered previous to the establishment of the Task Force and correspondence).

The folder "Minutes and Set Up of Task Force" contains a description of the Task Force's organization, meeting agendas and minutes, a list of Task Force members, progress reports and correspondence.

Additions to the original collection are contained in Box 3 and consist of correspondence among committee members, notes, and reports and surveys, dating between 1987-88.
