UNCSA Archives

The archives exists as the institutional memory of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

Archives Collection Guides

The Archives collects material documenting the history of UNCSA. Collections are divided into two groups: Records Groups and Manuscript Collections. Record Groups consist of the historical records of the school dating from 1963 to the present, including minutes, reports, departmental files, personal and official correspondence, publications, sound and video recordings, event programs, photographic materials and other significant records generated in the day-to-day activities of the School. Manuscript Collections include material not produced directly by campus activities, but which relate to and illustrate the history of the school.

Guides to these collections, known as Finding Aids, describe the contents of a collection and can help you better understand the types of material in a collection and how they are organized. Finding aids for each collection are being prepared and will be made available on this page as they are completed.‚Äč

Please note that some collections or portions of collections may not be accessible because they are unprocessed, or because of the format of the material. Read more about using Archives material and contact the University Archivist to set up a time to view materials.
