The University Archives maintains the corporate memory of St. Cloud State University by preserving and using university records and publications of continuing value. Materials in the Archives document the University's development and serve as a convenient source of reliable information about University programs, people, policies, and property.
The bulk of the records held at the University Archives are university records. These records are created or received from units conducting of university activities.
There are finding aids of processed university records available now available on our Archon portal. Either perform a keyword search or click on the "collections" tab in the upper right hand corner.
Only a small number of records have been processed. As records are processed, finding aids will be posted on our Archon website. If you have any questions about records that do not appear here, please contact the Archives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
