About the Project

Project Goals

The goals of the Academic Health Center Archives Project are to identify, collect, and make available the institutional and historical documentation of the Academic Health Center, its six schools and colleges of medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, public health, and veterinary medicine, and its interdisciplinary centers at the University of Minnesota. The archives project will ensure that this documentation is preserved and made accessible for scholarly and administrative uses in the University Archives, in accordance with Board of Regents policies, University of Minnesota records retention policies, legal requirements, and professional standards.
