Scope and Contents note

Series contains handbooks, guides, and loose orientation materials created from 1968 onwards.

Handbooks consist of booklets featuring information on campus resources, pedagogy objectives, student and faculty responsibilities, degree requirements, academic policies, and codes of conduct. Separate handbooks pertain to students and faculty. In 1989, Parsons also began issuing handbooks for parents and families of students to acquaint them with school policies. The earliest handbooks date to 1968.

Orientation guides contain packets of printed materials distributed to students upon arrival at Parsons. Much of the information featured in the orientation packets repeats information in the handbooks, although it is often presented in a less formal manner. Orientation materials may include campus maps, schedules of events and academic calendars, administrative office directories, financial aid forms and applications, instructions for class registration, and assorted brochures, pamphlets, and booklets created by various offices and departments to help acclimate new students to an urban university environment. Many orientation packets contain guides to life in New York, with suggestions for purchasing school supplies, books, and clothing. The earliest orientation guides date to 1981.

Forms part of the Parsons Institutional Collections (PIC) Printed materials record group.
