Biographical or Historical Information

University Relations is the department of the university that interacts with elected officials, the media, chambers of commerce, businesses, social organizations, government agencies, and local and national leaders to further the goals of the university. A Director of Public Relations was first appointed in 1966. As the university developed so did its need for liaisons with others. In 1974, the Office of Community Relations filled this need, but nine years later it had become the Office of University Relations. During its lifetime the office has overseen a variety of activities; in 2008 the divisions within University Relations include Economic Development, Governmental Relations, News and Information, University Marketing, and Alumni Relations. D. Robert McGinnis, Vice President from 1986-1992, was also Executive director of the UCF Foundation, and his files form the basis for much of the collection.
