Faculty Papers: Donating Faculty Papers


The University Archives and Special Collections collects the professional papers of distinguished faculty members. Comprising materials created or accumulated during a faculty member's career, faculty papers document teaching, research, and academic and professional service.

Faculty collections enhance the official record of the University's community, culture, and institutional and administrative history and relate to broader topics of interest to researchers: higher education, Catholic and Marianist education, American intellectual life, etc. Faculty papers in the University Archives are made available to the University community and the public.

The University Archives acquires, preserves, and promotes the papers of distinguished faculty members who:

  • are known within their disciplines for significant and unique scholarly work.
  • have been recognized for excellence in teaching.
  • represent the University in the community through notable partnerships and projects.
  • have held high-level administrative or faculty leadership positions.
  • are recognized as leaders in their disciplines and professions.

In general, the University Archives collects the following faculty materials:

  • Audiovisual recordings
  • Course syllabi and blank exams
  • Correspondence and memoranda
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Diaries, journals, and memoirs
  • Grant proposals and final reports
  • Interviews
  • News clippings
  • Observational data and field recordings
  • Photographs
  • Publications
  • Reports authored
  • Speeches and presentations

The University Archives generally does not collect materials that could be found elsewhere in published literature or in other archives or University materials that are duplicated in the University's archives.

Please contact University Archives if you are interested in donating your papers or learning more about the process.
