The University of South Carolina Aiken's University Archives holds the permanently valuable non-current records of USCA. Of special interest are the archives holdings of Records of the Aiken County Commission on Higher Education, Records of the Faculty Assembly, and Records of the Chancellors. The Archives holdings document the founding of the institution and its growth from a two-year to a four-year institution. Manuscript and photographic holdings trace the institution's move from Banksia to its current campus on University Way.
In addition, the University Archives holds copies of student publications (yearbooks, literary magazines, and newspapers), faculty handbooks, commencement programs, photographs, and extensive documentation of USCA's quest for accreditation and continuing efforts at assessment.
The Archives is part of the Gregg-Graniteville Library on the USCA Campus. Hours are by appointment only. Please contact Alexia Helsley, University Archivist or Rodney Lippard, USCA Library Director, to schedule a research visit or submit a research question.
