Our department is home to the history of Gonzaga University, as provider of higher education and corporate citizen of the region since 1887. UASC contributes to the academic mission of the university by promoting students' use and appreciation of rare books, photographs, manuscripts and other historical materials. It shares in the civic role of the university by making these same resources available to the general public and visiting scholars.
