Mission and Purpose

The mission of the Library’s Campus History Center (CHC) is to acquire, document, preserve, and provide access to materials, documents, artifacts, and ephemera that directly relay the unique history, traditions, and heritage of the California State University Maritime Academy, from its inception in 1929 to the present.

 

Through our collections of President papers, academic and faculty records, University publications and student and alumni collections, we document not only the intellectual history, but the social, cultural, and visual history of the institution throughout its long history. We support the research, use, and dissemination of Cal Maritime history and offer reference services to all members of our community.
