Welcome To CUNY Digital History Archive

The CUNY Digital History Archive (CDHA) is an open, 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 (CUNY). Archives and CUNY libraries contribute significant historical collections and CDHA also accepts materials from individuals whose lives, in diverse ways, have shaped, and been shaped, by CUNY. Faculty, staff, students, archivists, librarians, retirees, and alumni have contributed to the university's democratic mission and CDHA reflects those efforts. Conducted under the auspices of the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning at the CUNY Graduate Center, in October 2017 CDHA received the Archival Achievement Award from the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York, Inc. We are grateful to the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for providing start-up funding.
