Brief Description:

The College of Visual and Performing Arts record group consists of two series:  college records and department records.  The department records are arranged alphabetically. There is also a substantial addendum of programs for art exhibitions, music and theater performances.

The college records consist of college council/senate minutes (1973-1985); curriculum committee minutes (1965+); records for the Artist Series Board, Artrain, Committee for Arts and Cultural Programs; costume files for university plays and dance programs from (1966-1998); and correspondence with departments and on various topics.  Although the Departments of Home Economics and Industry & Technology are no longer in this college, there is some correspondence concerning their programs (1960-1964).  Except for accreditation reports from 1980-1981, the department records are very scant and primarily contain newsletters, pamphlets and circulars.  One folder containing College Council Meeting Minutes (1965-1969) is located in UA 26, Box 2, Folder 17. More information on the history of the College of Visual and Performing Arts may be found in other University Archives record series.
