Preserving our history

The Waubonsee Community College Archives Center was established in 2009 to chronicle and care for our institutional memories.      


The Waubonsee Community College Archives Center honors the spirit, history and culture of the college by recognizing the past, acknowledging the present, and informing the future.


The Waubonsee Community College Archives Center provides diverse and dynamic collections and services that document and preserve the historic memory of the college, and enrich and support the educational and lifelong learning goals of the Waubonsee Community College students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members.  The college core values of accessibility, service, value, quality and innovation create the framework that sustains and embodies the Archives Center’s commitments to the college community.

  • Procure, preserve and organize historical resources in a variety of formats that illustrate the broad experiences, the varied perspectives, and the educational, intellectual, social, and material culture that have shaped and defined the college;
  • Elucidate the role played by the college within the larger contexts of higher education and the local communities;
  • Provide guidance and expertise in the use of archival resources.
