Our Mission: "Giving Voice to Diverse Communities Through History."

The Kutsche Office of Local History, located in the Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies, is home to the Local History Roundtable as well as several projects helping local groups and people preserve, protect, and retain history that is important to them.  This is accomplished through oral histories, supervised internships, research experiences, and fellowships, faculty directed projects, and the work of experts in their specific fields. Examples of recent initiatives are featured on our website and in the Kutsche Chronicle, published in Winter and Spring of each year.

Please contact us at (616)331-8099 or kutsche@gvsu.edu with questions or to learn more about how we can work with you. We look forward to hearing from you!
