University Archives holds the official records and other historically significant materials that relate to Fayetteville State University. The ultimate disposition of the university's records is based on a state approved Records Retention and Disposition Schedule which defines the length of time records are to be kept, their disposition and, if deemed permanent, their transfer to the archives. The department assesses University records, reviews them to assess their arrangement, and determines the level of processing that will be required for preservation. These activities help ensure the optimal research value and usability of the records.
Listed below are some of the types of records that are transferred to the archives:
