The Policies, Manuals, and Handbooks series consists of policy manuals from the College of Education and Allied Professions, UNC Charlotte policy statements, student appeals procedures, student teaching handbooks (1988, 2007), a teaching fellows handbook (1988), and various other manuals. Files are arranged alphabetically.
The Accreditation series includes institutional reports, self-studies, guidelines and professional standards, membership files, and other materials relating to numerous accrediting bodies. Several files relate to special education. Files pertaining to each of the various bodies have been grouped into the following five subseries: American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE); Council for Exceptional Children (CEC); National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE); North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction (SDPI); Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
The Strategic Planning and Budgets series contains five-year plans, an academic plan (1994), and files relating to the college’s mission statement and operations.

The Committees and Councils series includes general committee lists and files on specific groups such as the Faculty Council, Faculty Course and Curriculum Committee, Faculty Executive Committee, Faculty Grants Committee, Graduate Council, North Carolina Business Committee for Education, and Regional Issues Planning Committee, among others.

The files in the Educational Outreach series were received together as a separate accession and thus kept as a series when this collection was processed. The series consists of two annual report files and a faculty school service directory.
The Outside Schools and Organizations series is made up of materials relating to various other universities, consortiums, associations, foundations, local schools, businesses, and other organizations such as the Scottish Rite Clinic and the Microelectronics Center of North Carolina (MCNC).

These include but are not limited to Academic Affairs, Engineering, Graduate School, International Studies, Mathematics and Science Education Center, Media Services, Nursing, Registrar’s Office, and Office of Research. Files are arranged alphabetically.
The final series, Alphabetical Subject Files, includes the dean’s remaining subject files that did not fit easily into the other series. Examples of topics covered are adult education, commencement, curriculum library, day care, distance learning, honorary degrees, meetings, national examinations, Greek organizations, and surveys. Files are arranged alphabetically.
