Diversity and storytelling. Or, storytelling diversity. Or, telling stories of diversity.

This is a project I’m working on this year. As a Faculty Fellow for the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning for the current academic year, I facilitate discussion, course redesign, and a campus-wide joint project to tell stories of diverse experiences among our faculty, students, staff, and alumni.

A work in progress, I am most excited about the collaborative nature of the initiative, which is currently testing out assignments in a variety of classes – journalism, communication, writing, higher education leadership, human development and child studies, public relations, nursing, and social work.

My hope is that the purpose of this multi-dimensional and interdisciplinary project will challenge us to think more deeply about identity, conflict, and unity, and paint a diverse picture of Oakland University.

Excitedly, to be continued.
