      History

      The first Information Office was established in 1965, and later expanded in 1967 to become the Public Relations Office responsible for publications, public relations and fundraising. The Publications Office split from Public Relations in 1968, and the following year a Fund Development Office was established, so that by 1970 four separate offices were in place (Alumni, Public Relations, Publications, and Fund Development). During the 1970s several appraisals were carried out on the four offices, and in 1978 all but the Alumni Office were amalgamated into a new Office of Community Relations. The Fund Development Office separated again in 1981. The office was renamed Public Affairs in 1986. The records reflect the Office's chief roles as the central public relations unit providing media and community relations services, publications, public relations consultation services for academic and administrative units as well as committees, and graphic design services (PACCR, 1984).
