The UNO College Business Management Short Course, later known as the College Business Management Institute, was a week-long summer workshop in administration, budget preparation, personnel management, purchasing, and other business aspects for operating colleges and small universities. The short course was first established at the University of Omaha in 1950. The University of Omaha (OU, until 1968) and the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO, after 1968) served as the headquarters for this national course, drawing faculty and attendees from across the United States. There is a gap in the records between 1974 and 1984. At some point during that time, the name of the event was changed to the College Business Management Institute. The 1984 and 1985 College Business Management Institutes were cosponsored by UNO and the Central Association of College and University Business Officers (CACUBO). Records for events beyond 1985 are not present in this collection. The date UNO ceased sponsoring this event is unknown. The records in the collection include the annual volumes (scrapbooks of typescripts, handwritten notes, photocopies, photographs, and ephemera) (1950-1957), student notebooks (attendee handouts, some with handwritten notes) (1955, 1957), reports to the Carnegie Corporation on the scholarship program (scrapbook-style) (1957-1959, 1963-1964), reports on the Short Course (1965-1974), certificates of completion of Harold Keefover (who served as director of the College Business Management) (1952-1957), participant binders (1984-1985), and annual report (1984).
