Accessing the Collection
Administrative History and Structure
Keith Wassum became the fourth director of CUC in November 1983, followed by Jim Hoppa as the fifth in 1995.
The Cone Center housed the Student Union and the Multicultural Resource Center (begun in 2001) until a separate Student Union building was constructed in 2009.
As of 2017, the Cone University Center falls under Student Union, Activities, and Recreation (SUAR) in the Division of Student Affairs. According to its webpage, it “is the community center of the University for all members of the University: students, faculty, staff, administration, alumni, and guests. It is not just a building; it is also an organization and a program” (https://cone.uncc.edu/ : accessed 14 November 2017). Among the offices housed in the Cone Center are Conference, Reservations, and Event Services (CRES), Venture, Honors College, Center for Graduate Life, and Chartwell’s Catering and Marketing offices.

The second series, Video Materials—Niner Telecommunications Network (NTN) and Campus Events Office (Student Union), contains half of an accession, the other half of which was processed into the Student Media Records (UA0054). The video logs are listed first in the inventory, followed by the tapes in their original order, as numbered by the office of origin.
The third series, originally an artificial collection, was left in the order in which it was filed at the time of accessioning.
For the most part, file titles were maintained, although some were standardized.
In October 2017, approximately half a linear foot of purchase orders, check requests, contracts, invoices, and similar materials were discarded.
