Inventory to the Records of the Montclair State University Division of Student Development and Campus Life
The Division of Student Development and Campus Life implements programs that enhance the educational mission of the University and enrich the experience of student life outside the classroom. The Division works with students, faculty and staff to create a safe environment that fosters student growth and success. Among the many offices included under the umbrella of the Division of Student Development and Campus Life are Academic Success and Retention, Equity and Diversity, Residence Life, Student Involvement, Undergraduate Enrollment, and University Police.
The Sprague Library Archives is not a formal institutional repository. This small collection consists of a wide variety of publications that pertain primarily to student life outside the classroom. Included in this collection is documentation of student clubs, organizations, and activities, student newsletters and other publications, student handbooks and directories, and undergraduate admission brochures. Among the items included in this collection are a Montclair State Normal School Student Handbook from 1925-1926, Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society meeting minutes and reports from 1931-1947, campus activity calendars from the 1960s, and a policy statement regarding campus protests, issued after protests erupted on the Montclair campus in 1970. The collection also includes student publications, to include Freshman and Sophomore Class newsletters from the early 1940s, Dayshift alternative newspapers from the early 1970s, Harambee newsletters, published by the Black Student Organization in the early 1970s, and Quarterly booklets, featuring literary works of students from the 1980s. Although the collection spans several decades, there are many years for which there is no documentation.
