 Current literature outlines the importance of and strategies for collecting student life material in institutional archives but does not address the inclusion of this material within collecting policies. This study evaluates publicly available collecting statements from ARL insitutions’ University Archives for mention of student life archival material, diversity, and proactive approaches for collecting said material. Findings suggest that while many ARL institutions mention student life in these policies, many do not make the connection to how this material relates to diversity within the university archives or provide a proactive approach to collect this material
