College Union Idea Project

It’s been decades since Porter Butts published “The College Union Idea,” a historical overview of the college union movement from its inception to the 1960s. Now, ACUI is looking to update that publication, and we need your assistance!

Please use this form to upload campus materials that might be used to illustrate trends in college unions. We are especially interested in photos, brochures, speeches, annual reports, meeting minutes, and other documents from the 1970s to present day.

If you would prefer, you may alternatively mail documents to TJ Willis, 1200 Talley Student Center, 2610 Cates Ave, Raleigh, NC 27695 or e-mail them to  

By submitted documents to ACUI, you acknowledge that all information is factual and original and that all quoted material is properly cited and does not infringe upon any copyright.
