Press: UC San Diego Library Joins Project STAND: Archiving Student Activism at Universities and Colleges across the Nation

Nearly twenty colleges and universities around the country have joined to launch Project STAND (STudent Activism Now Documented), an online hub to heighten the awareness of archival and historical collections documenting student activism around the United States.

STAND will focus on digital and analog primary sources that document the activities of student groups that represent the concerns of historically marginalized communities (e.g., African American, Chicano/a, LGBTQ, religious minorities, disabled etc.). STAND will also highlight the work of others (e.g., faculty, staff, administrators, and alumni) who advocate for or support the interests of those communities.
