  • Publish the annual proceedings of "The History Project."
  • Assist students and faculty conducting local and global historical research.
  • Foster ties between Utica College and its surrounding communities.
  • Compile and preserve historical resources.
  • Collaborate with the Ethnic Heritage Studies Center at Utica College.
