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

Located in the Brooks College of Interdisciplinary Studies, the Kutsche Office is home to the annual Local History Roundtable as well as multiple projects designed to support local groups and people to preserve, protect, and retain their histories.  Examples of recent initiatives are featured on our website and in the Kutsche Chronicle, published quarterly. Please contact us at 616-331-8099 or [email protected] to learn more about how we can work with you.
