DePaul University Student Affairs records

Identifier: DPUA0030

Scope and Contents

The Student Affairs collection is a sprawling record group containing documentation from university offices devoted to student life, activities, and issues, as well as materials from specific student organizations. These student groups include sororities, fraternities, and groups organized around a wide variety of social, cultural, and academic interests. Administrative files document campus food service, scholarships, policies and procedures, strategic planning, fundraising, enrollment and retention issues, annual reports, and other records from the Division of Student Affairs. This collection is a legacy collection and newly accessioned material stopped being added to it in 2016. To view materials relating to the Division of Student Affairs from 2016 and later, consult the DePaul University Division of Student Affairs records.
