The Dwight Greene Internship for Intergenerational Communication and Archives
The Dwight Greene Internship for Intergenerational Communication and Archives was established in honor of Dwight L. Greene ’70 who was a dedicated diversity advocate and community builder, educator, attorney, mentor, colleague and friend.
The Dwight Greene Internships for Intergenerational Communication and Archive, supported by the Dwight Greene Memorial Fund and The Office of Equity and Inclusion, is a project that seeks to forge community and understanding between former and current members of Wesleyan University. The interns use video and audio technology to document an array of experiences from the perspectives of alumni and students of color, and faculty and staff engaged in social justice efforts.
The intern is responsible for coordinating the interviews that range in topics from their experiences that deal with issues of social justice, civic engagement, or academic experience. The interviews are recorded and collected to be stored in the Olin Library Archives to contribute to the body of primary resources documenting the experiences of people of color at Wesleyan University.
A list of past participants of the project include:
