WSC Archives

The mission of the Wayne State College Archives is to serve as the institutional memory of the college through the identification, acquisition, maintenance, and preservation of records of enduring historical, legal, fiscal, and/or administrative value, in all formats, that chronicle the activities of the college’s administration, faculty, staff, and students. 

The archives also appraise, maintain, and preserve the records of alumni and friends of the college received as gifts should the subject matter of the records relate to the mission or history of the college. The archives make records available, according to an access policy that safeguards documents and privacy, to all those seeking to learn about Wayne State College and the college community.
