    History

    In 1979, the California State University and College Board of Trustees, with an eye on the up coming 20th anniversary of CSU system, established the California State University and Colleges Historical Archives Project. The project, which became the California State University Historical Archives, is housed at CSU Dominguez Hills. The archive was established to include selected materials related to the origins and development (approximately 1958-present) of the CSU system as a whole and deemed of historical significance.
    The advisory board was established also in 1979 to assist in identifying materials for the collection and to provide advice on the over all support and development of the archives. Membership on the Advisory Committee consists of 15 persons drawn from present and past trustees, retired presidents, faculty leaders, CSU historians, and members of the general public. The Chancellor and the President of CSUDH serve as ex-officio members. The committee meets at least annually with additional meeting possible by a call from the chairman.
