Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
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.
