During the last decade, several American universities have undertaken formal efforts to document and study their relationships with slavery and racial discrimination. Archival material, the work of archivists, and the creation of new material for university archives have played prominent roles in university projects, which include courses, increased community outreach, public apologies, publications, and research. These multifaceted projects continue to explore the historical and moral questions raised for the institutions.
