Voices of SJC is an oral history project curated by McEntegart Hall Library/Archives in collaboration with St. Joseph's College Brooklyn Campus Honors Program. The project was inaugurated in the Spring 2017 semester as a part of the College's centennial celebration. Led by the Library faculty moderators, students engage with the College Archives to develop a strong understanding of the history of the College and conduct an oral history interview. Interviewees include but are not limited to the Sisters of St. Joseph, current and former faculty/staff members, and alumni. The students develop interview questions, discuss the theoretical implications of capturing histories orally, in addition to gaining interviewing skills.
