- 1946-1998, predominant 1971-1990
The fonds consists of correspondence, minutes, reports, statistics, program and course descriptions and proposals, news releases, and publications. Most of the records originated from the Director's Office of the Centre for Continuing Education, and its predecessor, the Department of University Extension. They document these units' functions, activities, policies, and relationships with other University bodies and external agencies. Also included are audio recordings of lectures and other events sponsored by the Centre. There are also records from the office of the Associate Vice-
President, Academic, from when he oversaw the operations of the Centre between 1988 and 1991. Other materials originated from the Women's Resources Centre: three folders of reports, correspondence, and photocopied newspaper clippings relating to the 1971 Status of Women conference, and over thirty publications dealing with women's issues.
The first series consists of the central office files, distinguished by an alpha-numeric filing system. Prior to processing, the files were scattered through several boxes, but are now rearranged according to the original file codes, which were retained as part of each file title. The files from the Women's Resources Centre are maintained in their original order. The first two files in the Associate Vice-President Academic series actually predate the rest of the series, but were presumably brought over and kept by Dr. A.J. McClean for reference purposes, and are included for the sake of clarity and convenience; the records are otherwise in alphabetical order, which appears to have been their original arrangement. Both of these series are placed at the end of the file list. The rest of the records are arranged in the following series: Policies and Procedures, Administrative Committees, Staff Relations, Projects and Studies, Program Committees, Programs, LiaisonWith External Agencies, Special Events, UBC Departments, UBC Committees, External Bodies , and Sound and Moving Images.
