In St. Louis
In St. Louis is an annual project designed to explore — through the experiences, scholarship, work, and voices of St. Louisans — what it means to be in St. Louis today. Toward the academy’s charge of “being the primary vehicle for shifting climate and culture on all the university’s campuses with a focus on faculty and staff,” this project recognizes the interconnectedness of the climate and culture at Washington University and that of the larger St. Louis region.
Stories of change illustrate the challenges we still face, but also the progress we can make on those challenges when we commit time, attention, talent, and resources to addressing an issue. It is also an example of how climate and culture, as well as narrative and expectations, can change over time for the better.
