About the research team

WritingCUNY and Narrating America in the Contemporary Community College are two integrated projects led by Colette Daiute. The WritingCUNY working group launched an ongoing blog project that promotes collaborative student writing and analysis across community college campuses. Narrating America is an ongoing series of public forums about the meaning of community college to faculty, students, and administrators from every organizational level throughout CUNY. Daiute and Digital Fellow Jessica Murray also developed Narrating America: The Game, an interpretative video game and research tool that fosters mutual understanding and collective action around community college student experiences. The future of public education in NYC depends in part upon a better understanding of student experiences of community college, and these projects lay the groundwork for students to broadcast their public voice across campuses
