Higher Education Collaborative
Interested in involving students in the project?
The Higher Education Collaborative works with local professors to involve college and university students in collecting and transcribing oral histories of Worcester women as a part of their coursework. Students have the opportunity to learn actively through hands-on experience with oral history and share their work with the Worcester community through public forums, in print, and online. This is an effort to create innovative cross-institution collaboration and engage students in the community in a respectful and meaningful way.
Since this effort was launched in 2005, the following professors have incorporated WWOHP interviewing into their courses. Classroom tutorials on conducting oral histories are available if requested. It is our hope that every campus in the Colleges of Worcester Consortium will become involved in this project.
