COMPACT Story Lab
The COMPACT Story Lab is an innovative digital space that supports transformative social change through the creation and preservation of oral histories (and associated materials), often created in collaborations between Brandeis University students, faculty, staff and community partners. The goal of the Story Lab is to honor the stories and experiences of individuals and groups that have too often been marginalized in mainstream histories and narratives. As well, the COMPACT Story Lab will preserve and celebrate the history of social justice activism and community engagement at Brandeis.
