University Archives & Special Collections in the Joseph P. Healey Library at UMass Boston is pleased to announce that the University of Massachusetts Boston: Accreditation Steering Committee records, 1990-1995, are now open for research.
The collection documents the activities of the Accreditation Steering Committee at the University of Massachusetts Boston following an evaluation of the University by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education, New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), on April 12-14, 1992. An Accreditation Steering Committee was appointed in August 1993 and their self-study activities concluded in April 1995. The majority of the collection comprises the records of Martin Quitt, Professor Emeritus of History at UMass Boston, including memoranda, drafts of standards for accreditation, and self-study reports.
These records have been processed as part of University Archives & Special Collections’ Save Our History! campaign. In preparation for UMass Boston’s 50th anniversary, University Archives & Special Collections is calling for the transfer of founding documents and organizational records from all units on campus. These units include (but are not limited to) academic departments, administrative units, institutes, centers, and student groups. Read more about transferring University records to UASC.
