Historical Note

The Office for Educational and Academic Affairs operated as its own entity under the auspices of the President's Office from 1990-1997. The office was run by Madelaine Marquez, Special Assistant to the President, who held this position from 1989-1997. The Office of Educational and Academic Affairs participated in a wide variety of activities, but was primarily responsible for administration of grants related to the SummerMath Program and the Magnet Middle School. In addition to these duties Madelaine Marquez also held the position of Affirmative Action Officer for the College from 1992-1997.

The records contain correspondence, reports, grant applications, budget information, fliers, brochures, articles and publications.
