Trinity Washington University Archives

Mission of the Archives of Trinity Washington University

The mission of the Archives of Trinity Washington University is to collect, arrange, preserve and provide access to the records that document the history and life of Trinity. These documents include the official records from the Schools, offices, and departments which constitute Trinity, along with records from student groups, from the Alumnae Association, and from organizations with which Trinity is associated.
