Scope and Content Note

This Record Sub-Group contains seventy-five microfiche of press releases created by the Office of Public Information. Materials are organized topically and within each topic chronologically.

Historical Note:

Public relations and information dissemination for the University of Missouri System and MU were handled by the MU Office of Public Relations until 1968. During the 5 year period between the creation of the UM-System and 1968, the MU Office of Public Relations handled the communications needs of both the MU campus and the UM system. In 1968, the Office of University Information Services was created as an UM-System office to serve the public relations, information and publicity needs of the UM-System's central administration and the four campuses. The campus-specific information dissemination needs of MU were handled through the Office of Public Information and its successor office, University Affairs. In 1980, the name of University Information Services was changed to University Relations and it was charged with the responsibility of planning and conducting internal and external communications programs at the system level. This included acting as the information source for the Board of Curators. The Office of University Relations was also responsible for coordinating information and publicity efforts with counterpart offices at the four campuses and with University Outreach and Extension. The Office of University Relations consisted of three departments: the Information, Public Relations and Publicity unit; the Radio and Television unit; and the Extension Information unit. In 1985 Extension Information split from its parent office and formed the Office of Extension Communications.
