As a publication centered on the idea of diversity, Ourstory's mission is the creation of a space that facilitates the expression of an array of voices. Our goal is to create a community on campus that supports and sustains creative works that engage and connect our campus on issues that are pertinent and compelling to our lives, such as those of race, class, gender, sexuality, and politics. After all, as a campus community, we all come from very different places and backgrounds, so hopefully through this work we can create a forum for expression of and dialogue across those differences.
