This online exhibit features audio and video interviews of past and present SRU faculty, staff, presidents and alumni. Hear the wonderful stories of the people who have shaped this institution from Slippery Rock State Teachers College, through the Slippery Rock State College years and into the Slippery Rock University of today.


The videos in this exhibit are only short clips of the full interviews. Access to the full video files, where applicable, is available from the Archives. Please contact the archives to schedule an appointment to view the materials or find out more information about the collection. All of the full audio files and transcripts are available online through Islandora.

This project is sponsored by the offices of the President and the Provost, Bailey Library, and the English Department.

The Rock Voices advisory board included Cynthia Dillon, Mark O'Connor, Judy Silva, Philip Tramdack and Robert Watson.

Student team members: Morgan Bonekovic, Annamae Mayer, Angela Rimmel, and Lindsay Whalen (transcribers), Brady Crytzer and Teresa DeBacco (office coordinators/interviewers), Sarah Meleski (interviewer/transcriber), Chelsey Rovesti (webmaster), and Roxanne Rubash (graphic design).
