DePaul’s new Social Transformation Research Collaborative (STRC) examines and celebrates the cultural forms and traditions that people of color have created to survive historical and structural violence. Our stories, art, food, music, history, poetry, and religious practices have been, and are, sources of resilience, rebuilding, and intellectual community.
We are very excited to invite newly admitted DePaul undergraduates to become part of our Collaborative by applying for a one-week Summer Institute on
Stories for Racial Justice and Healing.
If selected, the new undergraduates will join a dynamic group of faculty, staff, current and past DePaul students, and special guests to explore various modes, genres, and forms of stories and storytelling that connect with the Institute's theme.
In addition to meeting new friends and mentors and learning more about DePaul, students will earn two hours of college elective credit; all travel, on-campus room and board, fees, and tuition expenses will be paid by DePaul.
