The Narratives Project leads cohort programs to help students explore identity and find resilience in community. Dozens of “What is Your Story?” videos have emerged from these programs. Dr. Bacal also teaches a course called “Designing Your Path,” which helps students reflect on questions such as: What is your story? Where have you been and where are you going? What matters to you? What skills do you need to pursue what matters?
