Alumni Association’s History & Traditions website goes live
The committee’s goal is to link the past with the present by preserving, interpreting, and displaying University history.
The University of Illinois has a long and rich history, which has never been shared with students, alumni, and the community in such a unique way. Until now, there has been no central location for the preservation of historical content and archives for our three campuses. The Alumni Association’s History & Traditions committee has a mission to focus on research, technology, publications, exhibits, and displays, scholarship, and orientation in order to foster greater appreciation of the rich heritage of the University of Illinois and its contributions to society.
The launch of the website, www.uihistorytraditions.org, is the first step to begin to share the work the committee has completed and the work they will do to continue to gather and communicate history from across the University.
