Scope and Content

These files were created and maintained by Professor Vivian R. Jackson, Associate Dean of the Graduate College. The files reflect her areas of particular responsibility within the Graduate College, notably graduate student outcomes assessment and graduate curriculum. But the files also include information about the McElroy Fellowship as well as policies affecting graduate students. This material came to the University Archives from the Graduate College in January 2005, about eighteen months after Professor Jackson retired. Some material in the collection may have been added by Professor Jackson's successor as Associate Dean, Professor Jacqueline McGlade.

These files include meeting minutes, guidelines, memos, reports, and other documents relating to outcomes assessment and curriculum revision of graduate programs.
