Opportunity Description

Are you a UF undergraduate student interested in learning more about how environmental issues have long shaped and continue to shape communities along the Gulf of Mexico? As part of UF Gulf Scholars, the Bob Graham Center for Public Service and the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program invite you to take part in an exciting oral history field excursion from June 11-14, 2024.

Selected students will work with seasoned oral historians to interview residents of Pensacola, Florida who were impacted by several toxic waste sites and were part of the third largest environmental relocation in U.S. history. Following the field excursion, students will process the collected material for inclusion in the UF Digital Collections.

UF Gulf Scholars will provide transportation, lodging, and food for each of the travel days to Pensacola, Florida.
