Community Engagement

Diversity Project

Currently, Jeffrey Pufahl serves as director for the DiversityProject, a multi-year initiative that explores issues around diversity at the University of Florida through oral histories, interviews, and story circles which are then translated into theater presentations. Jeffrey brought Dr. Kitty Oliver to UF in 2016 for a series of lectures and performances on race and change and using oral history for social justice.  The first semester of the project produced two original student-written plays which are based on 40 interviews with staff, faculty, and students. These plays are available for groups who wish to engage in discussion around issues of diversity on campus.
