University Archives

The University Archives consists of all the records, both essential and historical, generated by the University in the course of its business. This includes materials from both UHD and also its predecessor, South Texas Junior College.

The Archives is arranged in large Record Groups, with individual offices having their own collections. There are seven Record Groups (links all go to specific collections within the Digital Archives):


RG-AA (Academic Affairs)

Contains the records of the Office of the Provost, Library, Planning, Enrollment Management, Advising, and Student Affairs

RG-C (Colleges and Academic Programs)

Contains records of the individual Colleges, distance education, English Language Institute, and sponsored programs

RG-ESO (Employment Services and Operations)

Contains all records related to Human Resources, training, and employment

RG-F (Administration and Finance)

Contains the records of Facilities, Information Technology, Budget, Compliance, and Police

RG-PA (Public Affairs)

Contains records and output of University Relations, Corporate Relations, Giving, and Events (including scholarship fundraising)

RG-PO (President's Office)

Each collection is a President's tenure


This group contains all materials related to South Texas Junior College and its administration, as well as the purchase of STJC by University of Houston in 1974. It is broken down into several subgroups to facilitate searching.

RG-V (Visual Materials)

Contains any and all photographs, physical and digital, separated by time period and office
