Minority Public Health History Project: MSC History Project

What is the MSC History Project?

What is the Minority Health History Project?

The Minority Health History Project is a collaborative effort to collect, document, preserve, and make available the rich history of the Caucus. The initial work is bringing together a wide variety of materials such as audio recordings, videos, and transcripts of interviews with individuals who were involved in the development of the Minority Student Caucus at UNC-CH. You can see the beginnings of this collection process on these pages.

Who is involved in the Minority Health Project?

The Health Sciences Library and the Gillings School of Global Public Health are initiating the project. However, we welcome anyone who is interested to become involved. 

What is next for the project?

The project will include interviewing individuals who were instrumental in the MSC founding and those who continue to support its role in the health community today.  We also want to identify correspondence, speeches, photographs, and organizational records that document the history of the Minority Student Caucus and various projects members initiated, such as the annual Minority Health Conference. 

What can I do?

In anticipation of the School's 75th anniversary, a selection of photographs, stories, memories, and anecdotal bits are being sought, especially those pertaining to the Minority Student Caucus and its 32-year history.

We invite you to participate in the project at any level. Please contact Associate Director of Development Stephen Couch in the Office of External Affairs (stephen_couch@unc.edu or 919-966-0219).
