Tell Your MSU Story: Documenting Your College Experience

Project Overview


The MSU University Archives, a unit of Library Services, is conducting an oral history project to document the Minnesota State University, Mankato experience. We are looking for alumni, faculty, employees, and current students to participate in this project. If you are a Minnesota State Mankato alumni, faculty member, employee, or current student you are eligible to participate in the project.

How to Participate

  • Be Interviewed by Archives Staff
    The University Archives will be conducting and coordinating oral histories. Please contact the University Archives if you are interested in being interviewed.
  • Be Interviewed by Someone Else/Conduct Interviews
    With over 90,000 alumni, it will be challenging for the University Archives staff to interview all that would like to participate. The University Archives has developed a project packet that anyone can use to interview a participant.

What Happens to the Interviews?

All interviews will be added to the University Archives and made available to researchers in an effort to document the University's history.  Selected interviews are added to ARCH:  University Archives Digital Collections.

Donating Materials to the Archives

The University Archives does accept donations of MSU memorabilia, student organizational records, departmental records, and other items. Monetary donations to help preserve materials in the University Archives are also appreciated. Please contact Daardi Sizemore, Archives and Special Collections Librarian and visit our donations page before sending anything.
