Veterans History Project

Started in 2006, the Veterans History Project is a collaboration between the GVSU History Department and the University Libraries Special Collections and University Archives to collect oral histories from local war veterans. Now hosting and digitizing over 1,200 interviews and other artifacts such as diaries, letters, and home videos, you can find out more about the project and how to contribute.

Gi-gikinomaage-min Project

Display of Native American artifacts

Newly funded in 2013 by the NEH, the Gi-gikinomaage-min Project is the brainchild of the Kutsche Office of Local History, working with the Native American Advisory Board, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Special Collections and University Archives, and local-area heritage centers to document the experience of urban Native Americans. You can follow their progress on the Kutsche Office's website.
