University Archives serves as the institutional memory of UNC Charlotte. It is the official repository for university records of enduring administrative, fiscal, legal and historical value. To support the teaching, learning, research, community service, and administrative needs of UNC Charlotte, the University Archives collects, preserves, and makes accessible these unique and valuable resources. The goal of this program is to ensure the preservation of historically significant records and other materials that document the university's origins and activities as well as the achievements of its faculty, students, staff, and alumni.
The University Archives includes administrative and organizational records, publications, photographs, and audiovisual materials in all formats. Materials date from 1946 to the present and include historical records from UNC Charlotte's predecessor institutions: the Charlotte Center of the University of North Carolina and Charlotte College.
