Since two members of the 1992 25th Reunion Class are BSC employees Kristin Harper, Director of the Bunting Center for Engaged Study and Community Action, and Gina Armstrong, BSC Archivist and Digital Initiatives Librarian, the two of us put our heads together and decided to celebrate the College's 50th anniversary of E-Term (formerly known as Interim) and the 30th anniversary of the first international E-Term Service-Learning experience by creating a digital exhibition and archive of Service-Learning-related materials.
While initially focused on the 1992 experience in Zimbabwe and including the 1991 Brazil and 1993 Bolivia experiences from closely related classes, the digital archive will continue to expand as we are able to add additional materials already held at BSC and those generated through this initiative.
To that end, we'd like to hear from you—literally. We want you to send us your memories, preferably in the form of an audio oral history, Story Corps-style; but, we're open to other forms, of course, like written histories and video histories.
We've come up with some prompts to help you think about what Service-Learning meant, and continues to mean, to you. Please either come find one of us at the Shrimp Boil on Friday night, October 13, on campus, to set up a time for us to record your memories during the reunion; or, fill out the form below and send them to us directly. After a little magic prep work, we'll add them to the digital archive, along with the chronicle, photos, and videos we already have.
Thank you in advance for your help, and, as always, Forward, Ever!
