Biographical Sketch

In 1959, it was decided that the university should continue the self-evaluation study first begun in 1951 by Texas Tech President Wiggins. Though the main purpose of the study was to evaluate the university's graduate programs, the study surveyed both the undergraduate and graduate programs. A faculty committee was created to serve as a steering committee for the faculty study section.

Each department was asked to submit a report on its doctoral programs and to complete a report based on questioned set by the self-evaluation committee. A composite report was compiled from these various departmental reports, after which the committee reviewed the report and made suggestions. A final draft of the report was then completed. The university repeated the self-study with final results in 1973 and completed another self-study in the 1980s.


Scope and Content

The collection contains the departmental and administrative reports used to compile the final university self-study reports. The bulk of the departmental files come from the School of Home Economics and Registrar's Office.


 

Organization

The materials are arranged into alphabetical order. The entire collection was reprocessed as half the materials were in folders and the other half loose in the box, with no perceptible order. Many items were duplicates and were culled from the collection.
