The GSU Archives is the repository for records of enduring value officially made or received by Governors State University and for other materials of historical value related to the functions of the University.

The mission of the GSU Archives is to select, preserve, and make accessible an authentic record of the programs, people, and operations of Governors State University, as well as to provide archival management for records of external organizations and documents of individuals in support of the administrative, teaching, research, and service interests of the University.

This digital community is curated on the principles set forth in the Archives Collection policy, selecting materials that best document the University and respond to the needs of faculty, staff, students, and external publics for historical evidence and information.
