About Us

Mission of University Archives

To collect, preserve, and provide access to historical and permanent records about the University, its founding, growth, and impact on our local community.

What We Have

The University Archives contain materials relevant to California State University San Marcos from its origin in 1989 through present day. The collections include, but are not limited to papers, colloquia, maps, photographs, audiovisual recordings, realia, and legal documentation regarding the founding and growth of the 20th CSU. Secondary records include documentation in any form that is produced by outside sources, such as newspaper clippings, deemed of value regarding University activities or members of the University community. We encourage consultation on materials prior to your visit.
