Historical Note

During the 1950s and 1960s, Student Personnel Services was concerned with providing varied assistance to the University students, and operated under the supervision of the Dean of Students.

Student Personnel Services underwent multiple name changes through the 1950s and 1960s: Office of Student Personnel Services (before 1948-circa 1952), Office of the Dean of Students (circa 1952-1959), and Office of Student Personnel Services (1959-circa 1966).

Student Personnel Services encompassed the following units: Central Administration (Dean of Women, Dean of Men, Foreign Student Affairs), Student Counseling Center, Student Testing Center, Placement Services, Student Residences / Housing, and Student Activities.

Many of these units were later managed under the Office of the Provost and the Student Life office.

The Office of Admissions was previously handled by units within the Student Personnel Services in the 1950s and 1960s, and was later reorganized as a separate Office of Admissions. The Office of Admissions was eventually managed by the Office of the Provost after the Office of the Provost was established in the late 1960s. University admission information is now included in Enrollment Management, a unit within the Office of the Provost.
