Team and Partners

This is a project of American University students, faculty, and designers. Our leadership strategy is to tap the organizational nodes on campus.

Core design team: Our project is led and funded by AU’s elected Graduate Leadership Council (GLC) on the editorial side, and the Leimert Phone Company on the design side.

Supporting organizations and divisions: The Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI), the AU Library and oral history archives, and the Office of Campus Life.
