About the Archives and Special Collections

General Information

Welcome to St. Catherine University Archives and Special Collections! 

  • University Archives provides access to documents pertaining to the history of St. Catherine, including its early years as both a high school and college up through the present university.
  • Special Collections complement the material in the Archives and support the University's mission by focusing on women's leadership and Catholic social teaching.

In both areas, we aim to collect and preserve materials of sufficient enduring value to warrant long-term preservation, and to make them available for research and institutional use. Visit our Digital Collections for online access to selected materials from University Archives and Special Collections.
