YOU INNOVATE AND CONTRIBUTE. WE SHARE AND PRESERVE.

The work and research in action of graduate students at Florida State University broadly impacts the campus community and the world around us. The Office of Graduate Fellowship and Awards (OGFA) initiated the Grad Impact: Digital Narratives Project to capture and amplify the voice of the lived Graduate Student Experience at FSU through video, podcast, and written narratives. These oral histories are preserved as permanent records in a collection established for The Graduate School in the FSU Heritage

and University Archives, DigiNole: FSU’s Digital Repository. The Digital Narratives project has grown to include undergraduate and graduate students pursuing study in various disciplines across campus and engaging in programs (InternFSU, Federal Work Study, and UROP) that encourage scholarly development beyond the classroom.
