Archival Services: Ikeda Library Archives

About the Archival Services

The mission of the University Archives is to gather and manage scholastic, historic, and cultural materials that reflect the actions, values, and founders of Soka University of America (SUA); the campus activities of students, faculty and staff; and the notable accomplishments of SUA alumni. We collect, preserve, and make accessible these official records and items that contribute to an understanding of the university’s history according to the Archives Collection Guidelines.
