American Archives Month

As a way to promote a broader understanding of, and interest in, the history of UMass-Worcester we celebrate American Archives Month each October. This annual celebration, "Look How Far We've Come (and How We Got Started)" focuses on the history of some aspect of the three schools that comprise UMass-Worcester: the School of Medicine, the Graduate School of Nursing, and the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Not only do we showcase speakers who were significant contributors to our legacy—with great stories to tell—but we also prepare for the event by conducting oral history interviews and accessioning into the archives surviving documents from earlier years of the institution.
