History of Xavier University Department of Education

As of May, 2015 the departments represented in the School of Education are: the Department of Secondary and Special Education, the Department of Educational Leadership and Human Resource Development, and the Department of Childhood Education and Literacy. The Department of School and Community Counseling which at one time was part of the School of Education later became the Department of Counseling (apart from the School of Education) in the College of Social Sciences, Health, and Education.

Processing Information

This collection was reprocessed into its current arrangement and description as part of a major University Archives reprocessing project that began in 2012-2013. This reprocessing project was largely an effort to disband a record group system, developed in the late 1970s, used to arrange university records. The record group scheme had been established by the first University Archivist, Lee Bennish, SJ, and chiefly organized materials by originating office and organizational structure. After Bennish’s tenure, oversight of the archives changed several times and resulted in a lack of adherence to the record group scheme for new acquisitions. The 2012-2013 processing project also sought to incorporate records for which little acquisition or contextual information existed. The project staff primarily reorganized records into subject-based collections. Occasionally subjects coincided with offices of origin (e.g. Subject, Presidents; Office, Office of the President; Collection, Xavier University President’s Office). This subject-based arrangement makes it difficult to identify or describe the collections by office of origin but administrative project records do indicate transfers and connections between original record groups and 2012-2013 collections. During the project, records were rehoused in archival folders and boxes, and new finding aids were created using the OhioLINK Finding Aid Creation Tool.

As of 2017, University Archives no longer employs the 2012-2013 system of arranging collections by subject.
