Mission Statement

The core mission of the Archives is to collect and preserve the permanently valuable records of Bennett College. Bennett College recognizes its responsibility for the orderly retention and disposition of all the historical records, organized within the Library, the Bennett College Archives. The core mission of the Archives is to collect and preserve the permanently valuable records of the College. The records that have been generated by the offices and departments of the College provide the most tangible evidence of Bennett’s origins and development as well as the activities and achievements of its officers, faculty, students, and alumnae.
 
Archival records can also provide faculty and other scholars with essential documentation of how Bennett has pursued its role as an educational institution, particularly as an institution providing higher education to African American women. In conjunction with its primary mission, the Archives also collects the personal and professional papers of College officers, faculty, staff and alumnae, as well as, the papers and records of individuals and organizations where the subject matter of the collection is particularly relevant to College history
