The University Archives
The university understood that it needed a central repository for its historic materials when it began to prepare for its 40th anniversary, which took place in 2009, as it began to assemble documentary information for the momentous event. As a result, The University of Texas at Dallas officially established the University Archives to preserve its unique history, knowing this need will be even more crucial as the university prepares for its 50th anniversary.
The University Archives are here to collect and preserve items of enduring value that document the history of UT Dallas. We want to work with all the schools, departments, offices, and centers on campus to preserve items they have generated that articulate their contributions to the university’s history. Once we establish these relationships and organize the material already in our holdings, we will then want to reach out to student organizations and distinguished alumni to make sure their stories are told as well.
We are very excited to work with all groups at preserving our illustrious history. If you have any questions or are interested in participating, please feel free to contact the University Archivist at 972-883-2573 or [email protected] . You can also visit the Guidelines for Donating Materials to University Archives web page and read more about the types of material for which the University Archives are collecting.
