Collection contains records of the Dean of Students from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) and its predecessor institutions. The collection also contains records from the UWM Office of Student Life and from the UWM Student Organization Advising and Resources (SOAR) office. Most of the records date from the 1960-1982; the materials predating 1960 concern fraternities and sororities. The collection largely consists of files of UWM student organizations, including fraternities and sororities, student government, and a wide variety of ethnic, political, professional, religious, and social groups. Most of the files contain only a charter application form and a group registration form, which lists the name and function of the group, its off-campus affiliation, meeting location, names and addresses of officers, and faculty advisor. Some files contain officer change reports, a constitution and by-laws, correspondence, newsclippings, photographs, and publicity materials. The most extensive files exist for campus fraternities and sororities, and Vietnam-era protest groups. Files also exist for a number of student groups for African Americans, Hispanics, and women.

The most recent addition to the collection consists of a large number of files related to the Student Association and disciplinary issues with some of its members and officers. Also included are subject files dealing with official policies of the Office of Student Life, such as on on-campus protests, as well as dealing with campus issues such as racism and student stress.
