Language of Materials
The records of Northwestern University's Task Force on the Undergraduate Experience fill three boxes and span the years 1983-1988, with the bulk of the material dating between 1987 and 1988. Materials include research and reports conducted prior to the formation of the Task Force, and data gathered by the focal groups, subcommittees and joint committees of the Task Force.
The original portion of this collection consists of a series of alphabetically-arranged topical folders. Records within each folder are arranged in chronological order by date with the undated material at the back of the folder. The addition contains a separate sequence of folders.
Method of Acquisition
This series was separated from the Richard Wendorf Papers, donated to the University Archives on August 16, 1989 as Accession 89-150.
Additional material from the Archives' General Files was added to the Series as Box 3 in July, 2014.
One folder of material relating to the Anthropology Department and one folder on Calendar Studies was transferred to the University Archives General Files. One and one-half inches of duplicates and two and one-quarter inches of extraneous material were discarded.
