The CUNY Digital History Archive (CDHA) is an open, participatory digital public archive and portal that gives the CUNY community and the broader public online access to a range of materials related to the history of the City University of New York. The CDHA will conduct and collect oral history interviews as well as accept historical materials and records held by individuals whose lives, in diverse ways, have shaped, and been shaped, by CUNY. Faculty, staff, and students have fought to sustain the university so that it lives up to its democratic mission and the CUNY Digital History Archive aims to reflect those efforts.

This project also involves coordination and collaboration with college libraries and archives that house significant historical collections as well as contributions from faculty, staff, students, archivists, librarians, retirees, and alumni. The CUNY Digital History Archive is conducted under the auspices of the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning at the CUNY Graduate Center. We are grateful to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for providing start-up funding for this project.
