Access the Archives physical and digital collections

The Concordia University Wisconsin Archives support the mission of the university by collecting, preserving, and sharing unique materials of enduring historical value, critical to the growth and development of the institution, in order to better appreciate God’s blessings and to have a basis on which to shape the future.
