These records were generated by the Office of the Dean of Faculty and document the administrative functioning of the office.

The correspondence primarily documents interaction between the Dean and other OSU offices and pertains to the organization of conferences, OSU research centers and institutes, and cooperation between OSU and regional community colleges. The committee records consist of correspondence and reports generated by university committees and address the topics of higher education for older women, new student programs, and the distribution and review of statements on student rights. Series III consists of reports pertaining to continuing education in Oregon and faculty instruction at OSU. The legal case file pertains to Economics Department faculty member Jeanne Dost and her complaint and legal action against the university.

There are two series in the microfilmed records: I. Awards and II. General Files. Series I pertains to the Mosser Plan for Awarding Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching and includes correspondence, articles and newspaper clippings, publications, and reports. In addition to a list of the recipients of the Mosser Award, there are records relating to the development of the award as well as the controversy involved in its implementation.

The General Files, series II, include correspondence, grant proposals, meeting minutes, memoranda, newspaper clippings, and reports. Among the topics addressed in these records include the development of new academic programs and curricula, instructional use of television in the classroom, pesticide research, student employment, and the Peace Corps program.
