World Wide Narratives

World Wide Narratives creates intentional spaces in which members of the Penn State community tell their own stories of lived experience, and listen to those told by others.  It explores who we are as a community, giving voice to what is often unheard and unnoticed with the aim of shifting awareness of difference, and provoking new approaches to addressing it.  The process is grounded in the assumption that meaningful human interaction involves risk, care, and openness.

Since Fall 2011, students, faculty, and staff have collected over 200 stories from our campus.  Please join our team to encourage listening and appreciation of the diverse stories and perspectives here at Penn State Harrisburg.  Contact Shivaani at for more information.
