The story of the Share Your Journey Spoken Word Project

The Share Your Journey Spoken Word project is a cross-campus initiative to open up a dialogue around the challenges of college. Its focus is on individual stories that are often hard to share---experiences and doubts that are tough to admit as each of us wrestle with our own path. Spoken word provides a conduit for these inner voices. The performances say, "I've been there. I understand," and give us an insight into how to support each other along the way. In this video, professors, and producers of the project, Terence Oliver, Dana McMahan and Mark Katz talk about how it all came to life.
