Please register for our 6th Annual Local History Roundtable to be held on March 26, 2015. Our topic this year is "Food, Farm, and Table"

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 different 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.

You can be a part of this exciting initiative by becoming a Friend of the Kutsche Office of Local History by making a gift of $45.  Your gift will allow you discounts to future programs of the Kutsche Office of Local History.
