Overview

Special Collections & Archives (SCA) holds regular programming around our collecting areas all year long. These events are funded by Foundation endowments to SCA to hold these events. Programming includes our annual Women's Event in the spring, an LGBTQ+ centered event in October (this past October we opened our exhibit Out in the Archives). We've also held community outreach programming teaching people how to conduct oral histories, as well as programming around our other collections.
