President DeLauder's tenure was marked by significant growth in every aspect of the campus community. This included student enrollment, infrastructure, the addition of seven masters degree programs, fundraising, and the development of the Office of Sponsored Programs which set the university on the path towards becoming the research institution that it is today.
At the time of Dr. DeLauder's passing the archives was nearing the completion of the processing of his collection. It is anticipated that the Office of the President - William B. DeLauder collection will be finalized and made publicly available by the end of the month. Patrons can expect to find series related to correspondence, subjects, travel, reports and publications, meetings, and grant awards. This post will be updated when the finding aid is published online.
