Connect With Sarah Gewirtz

Sarah Gewirtz, Information Literacy Librarian for the CSB/SJU Libraries, has created a Becoming Community podcast series.  In this series, we will talk about how the Mellon Grants are helping the CSB/SJU community to be more inclusive.

Season One of our series will focus on the first twin Mellon grants, which were awarded to CSB and SJU and were administered between 2015-2017. During this season we will talk to faculty and staff who had been involved with the Mellon Grants to find out what they did, what their next steps might be, and what their work means for the CSB/SJU Community.

The premiere episode features College of Saint Benedict President Mary Hinton.

Sarah Gewirtz talks to  Karen Erickson (former Academic Dean and current Professor of French), Jean Keller (Professor of Philosophy), and Kyhl Lyndgaard (current Interim Director of the Integrations Curriculum and Director of First Year Seminar).
