The Welcome Project at Valparaiso University is providing ongoing opportunities for students, staff, faculty, and community members to tell their stories through audio and video. We hope that these stories will illuminate the complex state of relationships on campus and in the surrounding community at the same time that they help us discover those things we share in common.

All of the stories gathered by the Welcome Project are first-person accounts in which participants describe how events mattered to them. We value these accounts for the perspective they provide on experience even when the stories do not reflect the views of the Welcome Project staff. First person stories derive their power from the specific location of a particular individual. By valuing each individual perspective, we hope to provide a space where a collective portrait begins to emerge.
