The mission of the Marymount University Archives is to support the goals of the University and reflect the policies, functions and purposes for which the University exists.
The Archives is the official memory unit of the University. By collecting materials from the past, it serves the present, and by collecting materials of the present, it serves the future. It attempts, then, to bridge the gap between the past, present and future by preserving all types of materials which document the growth and development of the University since its beginning as a two-year college for women in 1950.
These materials are collected from administrators, faculty, staff, alumni and students of the University and are made available to them for the purposes of historical research and information.
The primary purpose of the Marymount University Archives is to serve the administrative units, students, faculty and alumni of the University.
Marymount University Archives was founded under the direction of Sister Marie Joseph Rogan, R.S.H.M. in 1971. Sister Marie was interested in the organization of the University’s official records dating back to 1950.
The Archives serves as the institutional memory of Marymount University (MU) and its predecessor organizations as the Marymount Junior School and Marymount College of Virginia. The University Archives contains manuscripts, books, photographs and slides, newspaper articles, sound recordings, and audio visual recordings.
