About Us

Archives and Records Centre

The University Archives and Records Centre was established by resolution of the Board of Regents, July 1, 2001. The Archives and Records Centre has responsibility for all decisions affecting the retention and disposition of inactive University records regardless of format. The Archives provides access, advice, policy recommendations and program implementation with respect to the management of recorded information, including records that are no longer actively employed in the office of origin.

Our collection mandate is to document the history of the University of Winnipeg, the local community, as well as aspects of Manitoba history relevant to research at the University of Winnipeg, including social justice and human rights.  We are acquiring a growing number of records and manuscripts of individuals, families, and organizations to fulfill this mandate.
