University Archives-UNC Charlotte Aerial, 1995


The University Archives consist of the non-current, permanently valuable official records of the University dating from its establishment in 1946 as the Charlotte Center of the University of North Carolina. 

The University is unusually fortunate in having most of the administrative records from the early years to the present day. In addition, the Archives contain records of the faculty, minutes of the student legislature, theses, photographs and committee files. 

Copies of all University publications are deposited in the Archives, including the student newspaper and literary magazine, the University catalog and the alumni magazine.
