The mission of the Center for Applied Historical Research (CAHR) is to facilitate broad, democratic access to historical resources and knowledge. CAHR accomplishes this by applying historical scholarship to projects outside the academy through partnerships and collaborations among public and academic historians, corporate and government agencies, and public and private historical institutions. CAHR fosters and preserves community and institutional historical memory; advocates the application of historical understanding in policy formation; expands the skills of historians; and utilizes information technology to make the fruits of historical research widely available to teachers, students, and the general public.
