The North Carolina State University Division of Student Affairs Publications contain various internal and external publications produced by the Division of Student Affairs and its committees; the division's member groups, programs, and organizations; and by North Carolina State University students. This includes newsletters, magazines, bulletins, handbooks, course catalogs, and other publications related to dining, housing, admissions, registration, financial aid, religious affairs, multicultural affairs, the arts at North Carolina State University, the Reserve Officer Training Corps, student health services, and international student affairs. A significant portion of the material consists of student media publications such as the Agromeck (yearbook), Windhover, and Red and White. The materials are dated 1889 to 2018.

Working under their longstanding motto of "Students First," the North Carolina State University Division of Student Affairs works to provide "programs and services for students and the larger community to enhance quality of life, facilitate intellectual, ethical and personal growth, and create a culture which engenders respect for human diversity." In this pursuit, the member groups and programs of the Division of Student Affairs, including student media organizations, have produced a number of internal and external publications. In 2011, it merged with the Division of Undergraduate Academic Programs to become the Division of Academic and Student Affairs.

Scope/content

The North Carolina State University Division of Student Affairs Publications contains various internal and external publications produced by the Division of Student Affairs and its committees, as well as by the division's member groups, programs, and organizations. This includes newsletters, magazines, bulletins, handbooks, course catalogs, and other publications related to university dining, student housing, admissions, registration, financial aid, religious affairs, multicultural affairs, the arts at NCSU, the Reserve Officer Training Corps, student health services, and international student affairs. Also included are student media publications such as the Agromeck (yearbook), Windhover, and Red and White. The materials are dated 1889 to 2013. Please note that additional copies of some of the publications in this records subgroup are cataloged separately and available in either the library's general collection or the Special Collections Research Center's rare books collection. Please check the NCSU Library's online catalog for availablity. Course catalogs and schedules of courses have been authored and printed under the auspices of various campus departments at different times. As such, materials not present in this subgroup can be found housed in UA 005.200.

Arrangement

The contents of this records subgroup are arranged alphabetically. They are further organized alphabetically by the name of the publication and chronologically by the date of publication. The exceptions to this organizational method are duplicate copies of various types of materials, including Agromeck (yearbook), schedules of courses, and freshman bulletins. These duplicates have been placed at the end of the records subgroup. Also, please note that the responsibility for several publications has changed over time. In these cases, all responsible groups are listed, but the publication is arranged according to its current or most recent publisher at the time of processing (2006).
