Good Trouble UMW
A podcast about the history of student activism at the University of Mary Washington, a small public liberal arts college in Virginia with a big history of fighting for change. Did you know that in 1998, the University of Mary Washington almost changed its name to Washington and Monroe University, but students blocked that? Or that the school had its own Occupy movement in 2011? Or that an organization that had its first office in a Mary Wash dorm closet has now had over 7,000 volunteers? As part of this year’s first-year experience, Good Trouble: UMW looks at the history of student activism at UMW, with interviews from students, alumni, and faculty who worked to change the university, the state, and the world.
