IIC Student releases podcast to Amplify Voices of historically Underrepresented Students

Mary Reed Building from the Humanities GardenFirst Year International & Intercultural Communication student Mara Waldruff has released the first episode of her new podcast: "The Spoken Tapestry." The podcast will highlight stories by minority students at the University of Denver.

Mara says: "Though DU emphasizes inclusivity, many of its students of color have experienced racism, microagressions, and "othering" on and around campus. Through this podcast, I aim to share these stories along with those that touch on the individual's background and personality. And lastly, all of my interviewees respond to the question - what can white people do to help improve the cultural climate?"
