University Archives

University Archives is the home to St. Cloud State University’s record of university history and publications. The Archives maintains the University’s corporate memory by preserving and making available records, photographs and publications of enduring value that were created by St. Cloud State students, staff, and faculty since 1869.

The Archives, which was established in 1977, detail the University’s development and serves as a resource of information about St. Cloud State’s programs, people, policies and properties. Materials of, about, and created by St. Cloud State are made available for research and use both physically and digitally.

Content Statement

Libraries and archives collect materials that express diverse viewpoints and attitudes from different time periods for educational, archival, and research purposes. We understand these materials may contain images, language, and content that explicitly or implicitly embody or represent discriminatory and/or hateful attitudes toward and depictions of different groups and individuals, including (though not limited to): members of various racial and ethnic communities and nationalities; women; the LBGTQ+ community; those with disabilities; religious minorities; and other historically marginalized groups and communities.

Digitization has allowed wider public access to and easier discovery of our collections and St. Cloud State University’s rich history, and as such we do not restrict access to potentially objectionable materials. Where offensive materials are encountered, we encourage their use for scholarly research, discussion, and reflection of our past.

Please contact us if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions. We always welcome feedback and can be reached at
