The UCI Stories
Video Oral Histories collection contains one hour videos of campus leaders, innovators,
alumni, and other difference makers discussing UCI's bright past and brilliant future. These
video histories capture conversations documenting UCI's founding; the history of schools,
departments, and programs; and personal narratives. Conversations occured from December 2014
to March 2016. All materials are digital. Each oral history includes videos, prompts used
during the conversations, transcripts, and some contain video notes.
UCI Stories was created in conjunction with the UCI Libraries' 50th anniversary historical
documentation project. UCI Stories facilitated 50 discussion pairings of over 100 campus
leaders, faculty, staff, alumni, students, community members, and other difference-makers
representing the diversity of UCI in the broadest sense. Planning for UCI Stories began in
2013 and included consultation from the 50th Annviversary Committee. The goal of the project
was to capture voices and stories not yet part of the university archives. The structure of
the conversations was based on StoryCorps.
