ECTC Archives: College Community Events

Description of ECTC archives holdings; a brief history; finding aids; images


Community outreach and service has long been part of the college mission. One way the college fulfills this mission is to present concerts, plays, lectures, festivals and other events and make them open to community members. This collection contains materials pertaining to such events.

Items in this collection include the following:

  • Concerts presented by ECC or ECTC faculty that were open to the community
  • Concerts open to the community that were presented by individuals and groups not affiliated with ECC or ECTC
  • Plays presented by groups not affiliated with ECTC and open to the community. Cast and crew may include ECC/ECTC students, staff and faculty but the presenting group is not an official ECC/ECTC organization.
  • Presentations and lectures given by ECC/ECTC faculty that were open to the community
  • Presentations and lectures that were open to the community and that were given by non-ECC/ECTC individuals 
  • Festivals, gatherings, conferences that were open to the community
  • Poetry readings and other literary events that were open to the community
  • All Home for the  Arts brochures, cards and flyers
  • Events held as part of cultural history celebrations and social awareness endeavors
  • Programs such as School to Work and Upward Bound

College events have often been sponsored by college committees and student organizations. In many cases they have been sponsored by multiple groups. Events sponsored by SGA alone have been filed with SGA materials. Flyers and programs may list these sponsorships.

It is important to note that folder contents are not comprehensive (i.e. they do not contain flyers, programs or other materials that reflect all of the community events held at the college or under the sponsorship of the college.) Materials may be added as they come to light.
