The Center for Archival Collections at Bowling Green State University established the National Student Affairs Archives (NSSA) in 1982. The CAC, interested in establishing special collections reflective of the University's strong graduate programs, began to acquire the historical records from several professional associations involved in student affairs and higher education. Now comprising the institutional papers of fourteen national, four regional, and six state (Ohio/Michigan) professional associations, and the private collections of four individuals who have been extremely active in the field, as well as a cataloged library of books and pamphlets, the National Student Affairs Archives is used extensively by the associations, and by faculty and graduate students.
The CAC is committed to actively acquiring additional collections for this special collecting area. If you are interested in using these sources for research or if you are interested in donating collections, please contact Ann Bowers at the CAC.
