Bowling Green State University

The Center for Archival Collections established the National Student Affairs Archives in 1982. The CAC, interested in establishing special collections reflective of the University's strong graduate programs, began to acquire the historical records from several professional associations involved in student affairs and higher education. Bowling Green State University's masters level program in College Student Personnel and doctoral program in Higher Education and Student Affairs are both recognized as among the best in the nation. Now comprising the institutional papers of numerous national, regional, and state (Ohio/Michigan) professional associations, the private collections of several individuals who have been extremely active in the field, and a cataloged library of books and pamphlets, the National Student Affairs Archives is used extensively by the associations, and by faculty and graduate students. The CAC is committed to actively acquiring additional collections for this special collecting area. If you are interested in using these sources for research or if you are interested in donating collections, please contact Ann Bowers ( at the CAC.
