TThe Huston-Tillotson University Archives mission is to document the academic, administrative, social, and cultural history of Huston-Tillotson University by collecting, preserving, and providing access to materials of permanent historical value. The archives contains a wide variety of unique materials, including presidential papers, photographs, yearbooks, administrative records, scrapbooks, audiovisual materials, and campus publications. The collections include records dating from the 1870s to the present. As part of a historically black college, the holdings of the Huston-Tillotson University Archives provide vital documentation of the academic, social, and cultural lives of African American students, communities, and organizations in Austin. The collection materials also offer evidence of the University’s role in the history of American higher education, specifically within the African American community. The University Archives currently contains a large volume of unprocessed materials, however the archives remains open for research, and collections are currently being surveyed and processed.
