Departmental Exhibits

In addition to digital exhibits created by Chatham students, the Chatham Archives is pleased to present stories, histories, and examinations authored by the professional staff of the JKM Library. These exhibits present materials from the Chatham Archives and curated by Chatham librarians and archivists to contextualize and enhance a broad recognition of the role Chatham plays for an institutional and public audience.  

Ranging in topic from the history of Chatham student engagement in the U.S. Suffrage Movement to a profile of one of Chatham's first BIPOC graduates, departmental exhibits reflect the Archive's mission to promote knowledge and understanding of Chatham University by  contextualizing, and making publicly accessible a vast array of records documenting the development of the university‚Äôs programs and its communities of students, faculty, staff, and alumni.
