What Do We Call This? The CLS Alumni Society Podcast

Miri­am Tin­berg (Ara­bic 2012), Ash­ley Riven­bark (Chi­nese 2014), and Sana Vang (Chi­nese 2014), 2018 ADF recip­i­ents, used their Alum­ni Devel­op­ment Fund grant to pro­duce a pod­cast on behalf of the CLS Alum­ni Soci­ety, focused specif­i­cal­ly on diver­si­ty and inclu­sion. The pod­cast is a series of inter­views of CLS alum­ni where­in they have con­ver­sa­tions that explore the unique sto­ries of each alum­ni and how they coped with var­i­ous issues of iden­ti­ty abroad and at home. 

The goal of the pod­cast, which is an ongo­ing project, is to edu­cate peo­ple in the CLS com­mu­ni­ty regard­ing per­son­al sto­ries and expe­ri­ences with which they may not be famil­iar them­selves, and to remind lis­ten­ers of their abil­i­ty and respon­si­bil­i­ty to con­nect with oth­ers despite and because of differences.
