UNO Campus Planning Records
Scope and Contents
The UNO Campus Planning Records are comprised of records from various University of Nebraska at Omaha offices, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents, contractors, private citizens, and other concerned parties, dealing with the planning of UNO campus expansions. Expansions encompass the Dodge Street Campus westward expansion, Ak-Sar-Ben (Pacific Street Campus) and Center Street Campus land acquisition, and several unfulfilled attempts to secure a location in downtown Omaha, covering the time period from about 1968 until about 1999. The paper records comprise printed, copied, and handwritten documents, including planning documents, correspondence, proposals, agreements, budget information, space planning, land acquisition documentation, maps, and newspaper clippings.
