The Community Voices Collection is an archive of oral histories conducted by - and with - University of Washington Bothell students, staff, faculty, and community members. Represented in the collection are histories of international students, students with disabilities, founders of UWave Radio, staff who maintain campus facilities, staff who work with students, and more. These histories expand the breadth and depth of the recorded history of the University of Washington Bothell and the surrounding community.
The Diversity Center Archive presents and preserves the history and work of UW Bothell students and the UW Bothell community in creating the UW Bothell Student Diversity Center. The archive records the power of individuals coming together to achieve a shared goal.
Included in the archive are the narratives and voices of individuals who steadfastly committed to making the Diversity Center a reality at UW Bothell. Here we have collected interviews with change-makers, photos of demonstrations and activism, and other documentation of activism efforts and current Diversity Center activities.
We aim to present this work as authentically as possible through research and documentation. Our archive attests to the power of disenfranchised students and allies to create a counter-narrative and enact change that we hope will empower students for years to come.
The UW Bothell Student Diversity Center Archive is for students and by students. Our companion site includes more information about the Diversity Center and our archiving efforts.

The products of these student research and knowledge production activities comprise the content of the Archive.
