Avila University History Project

Add your experiences to this Avila history project

Avila archivist Amy Moorman, Carol Coburn, Ph.D., professor emerita and director of the CSJ Center for Heritage, and Dave Armstrong, director of university mission & ministry, have received a CIC NetVue grant, “Reframing the Institutional Saga,”  to research, preserve and compile a history of Avila University.

“Our lack of a cohesive institutional history limits the ability to leverage our rich heritage and strong ties to the Sisters of St. Joseph in demonstrating our shared vocational identity to faculty, staff, and students,” said Coburn. 

This two-year project is in the early stages, and it is now we need your personal experiences of your time at Avila University/College of St. Teresa. Your photographs, memorabilia, documents, and first-person stories will join our existing University Archives collection and help tell Avila’s story.

Please visit the Archives web page to learn more about what types of documents we’re seeking and how you can contribute. You can also contact the archivist directly.
