Backyard to Left Field
Each of us has a story, firmly planted in the ground of our personal values, which makes us who we are. When we are brave enough to share these experiences, something spectacular happens.
As we come together as students and openly express our beliefs and backgrounds, prejudice, bigotry, and ignorance dissipate. We begin to see each other and our world in a different light; together, our stories make a clearer picture of ourselves and our university.
The purpose of The Grace A. Tanner Center’s student story project ties into the center’s mission--to discuss “the full range of values... pertinent to the human condition.” Here, you can learn of experiences from all over SUU campus shared through art, photography, audio, and the written word.
Human Values and a Sense of Place
"In the absence of having marked sites on the land in which we can honor these untold stories
. . . we have each other."
- Dr. Sarah Lewis, 2018 Grace A.Tanner Lecture
