Regents' Meeting Agendas, Dockets, and Exhibits
Scope and Contents
This series of records includes agenda, dockets, and exhibits from meetings of the Iowa Board of Regents. The series is an exceptionally strong and official source of information about curricular development, facilities, and policies for the Regents institutions. The records are comprised of different individuals' records and have been integrated to fill gaps as needed. There is limited indexing available for some of the run. There are occasional small gaps in the holdings. Sometimes a docket is missing from a monthly meeting, while other times, an entire month of information is absent.
Also included are copies of some of the dockets, dating 2008 and 2013-2014 and were donated by Pat Woelber. These copies were retained and placed at the end of the collection, due to their significant handwritten annotations and other notes accompanying the printed dockets. It is unclear who took the notes.
