University Archives contains many UMRA documents.  One of the earliest was created with one of the  most common tools of the trade of the early 1980's. The 22 page, typewritten (remember those?) pdf document is titled: "PDF icon umra_history_1976-1983_by_e_gerald.pdf." It is very interesting reading.  Read online or download a copy.

President Donna Peterson signs Memorandum of Understanding

This past month both I, as president of UMRA, and Karen Hansen, executive vice president and provost, signed the Memorandum of Understanding. The intent of the agreement is to support and further the respective missions, goals, and programs for both organizations.

Most important for now, the MOU gives UMRA a home within the University in the Provost’s Office. It is a place to begin the conversations on how we can develop the specific measures and programs that can assist both the University and UMRA. 

For more see the May 2017 President's Letter on the Newsletter page.  Click here for a copy of the MOU.
