Tacoma Community College Archives: Collections

This guide shares resources about TCC's Archives collection.

Collecting Areas

The TCC Archives collects materials from TCC departments, offices, and employees, as well as from students and alumni. We seek to document the history of the college through a variety of means, supplementing records generated by and for the college with other forms of documentation such as oral histories.

Please see our collection policy for more information about the scope of TCC Archives' collecting.

Use the drop-down menu under the "Collecting Areas" tab or the links below to view different categories of records currently available for use in the archives:

The archives is actively seeking to expand its collection of student culture and activities, the work of student clubs, oral histories and beginning a collection of born-digital documentation of student work and resources. As the archives develop further, the focus will be to continue documenting the school’s administration and community, while focusing on individuals and events that reflect the school’s mission. This focus includes student movements, creative works produced within the campus community, lectures and discussions demonstrating social engagement or change, and the ways TCC engages with the greater community.
