CSU Archive

Charleston Southern University Archives for Academic Departments, Academic Support Services, Administrative Departments, and Student Support Services

The CSU Archives acquires, preserves, organizes, and makes available materials which sustain the institutional memory of the University. These records include those related to the development, activities, and achievements of the university and its enduring historical significance.

The CSU Archives is located on the Lower Level of the L. Mendel Rivers Library. The Archives' holdings are non-circulating but are open by appointment for research and reference.

For further assistance, or to make an appointment, please contact Dr. Enid R. Causey, University Archivist by calling 843-863-7940 or emailing.
