Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) Records

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: SC-057

Scope and Contents

The CCCU collection at Wheaton College comprises an array of materials concerning the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities in general, with particular focus on the various activities the organization has undertaken over the years to encourage the development of faculty and administrators (primarily through meetings, conferences, etc.) or students (through the Council's various study programs). The collection contains items dating from the mid-70s up to the late 90s, though the vast majority of records relate to the period stretching from the early to middle 80s up into the early 90s.

Much of the material can be classified as correspondence; among the many other types of documents included here are brochures, newsletters, formal papers, research reports, administrative and financial records, legal documents, and the occasional photograph.

The archivist has imposed on the collection its current arrangement in an attempt to make the clearest possible topical distinctions. The arrangement is largely by subject rather than type; many files contain a variety of the sorts of records mentioned above.
