Have you ever wondered where the Ghost of Christmas Past, Present, and Future live? My guess is that they hang out in an archive somewhere.
Although most people would think of an archives as serving the past, in actuality they influence the present to affect the future. Archival institutions document events as they unfold so that, in future, the records may be utilized and the events understood. By providing documentation of the past to university leaders as they shape the future, and by educating students about our history, the archives played a definitive role in the continuance of tradition and the understanding of legacy (the theme of President Mishoe's inauguration this past Saturday). In essence, archives are where the past, present, and future are exist harmoniously.
- April - The 50th anniversary of the 1968 student demonstrations
- May - The commemoration and closing of Laws Hall
- July - The 25th anniversary of the name change from DSC to DSU
- December - The investiture of the 11th President, Dr. Wilma Mishoe
Thank you for joining me on this adventure for another year! Here's to the many more to come.
