Biographical Note for University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Office of Administrative Data Processing :

The Office of Administrative Data Processing began in 1948 as the Statistical Service Unit, reorganized from the Accounting Division's Tabulating Machines Subdivision.1 The Statistical Service Unit supervised, operated and maintained data processing equipment for the University, with a primary responsibility to serve the Business Office, the Office of the Dean of Admissions and Records, and the Bureau of Institutional Research.2 In 1968, the Trustees changed the name and the organization to encompass four Offices of Administrative Data Processing: the University Office still reported to the Executive Vice President and Provost; the other three represented the three campuses.3 The Urbana-Champaign campus Office Director reported to the University Office Director, as the latter's campus representative in data processing affairs.4 The campus Office provided the Chancellor with data processing services for University-wide administrative purposes.5 Until 1976 the campus Director reported to the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affiars.6 For 1976 and later organization, see RS 24/10, Office of Administrative Information Systems and Services.7
