This collection documents the activities of the School of Education and Allied Professions, its individual departments, and various partnered organizations and centers. The majority of the files are from 1970 to 2000, and they include office files, correspondence, accreditation reports, and publications.
Series I, Administration, contains records pertaining to the administrative function of the School of Education and Allied Professions. It contains scrapbooks, histories, pamphlets and catalogues, specific School of Education and Allied Professions committees, dean’s office files, and miscellaneous materials. The two scrapbooks are mostly newspaper clippings and photographs documenting education in the news, the School of Education and Allied Professions, and the University of Dayton. The University of Dayton self-survey is a heavily documented topic, as well as, the Student Education Association and the Future Teachers of America. The specific School of Education and Allied Professions committees include, Graduate Committee, School of Education Staff Meetings, Student Education Council, Curriculum Committee, Academic Committee, Academic Affairs Committee, ECHO Committee, Administrative Coordinating Committee, and Promotion and Tenure Committee. Many of the committee records are restricted. The dean’s office files include meetings, annual reports, and materials by Dean Faerber and Joseph. Miscellaneous material includes correspondence, grant proposals, and various other materials related to the School of Education and Allied Professions.
Series II, Accreditation and Self Surveys, the largest part of this collection, contains restricted reports, surveys, and programs associated with accreditation.
