Finishing Foundations


The process of intentionally shaping stories for specific contexts and communities.


Storywork lets students know that their experiences (inside and outside of the university) matter.

Storywork deepens learning and helps students take ownership of their educational experiences. 


Storywork promotes personal and intellectual growth by highlighting connections and revealing motivations.  

Storywork is enhanced by faculty and peer mentoring. 

Storyboard Faculty

“Integrating storywork into and across our teaching and mentoring is a way for us to let students know they matter. Especially for our underrepresented students and especially in the context of campus growth–we see them, we hear them, and we are here to help them articulate their skills and stories.”

“Storytelling opens the door for reflection; it’s impossible to hear someone’s story and not reflect on how you may be similar or different. In my experiences with students, it is this reflection that causes them to switch from passive to active.”

Storyboard Design & Selection Committee

“Stories are everlasting—but not immutable. As a form, they are nearly universal but the content, cadence, and capacity of stories to shape everything from biology to politics makes them enormously powerful.”

–Emily Wakild, Storyboard
