A virtual community for students, by students.

The Stories from a Distance Team was an initiative that ran weekly sessions from from March-December 2020. We started this project as a way to create an online community to combat isolation and loneliness in the midst of the pandemic. This inspired many additional projects and initiatives at the Innovation Hub, which you can explore below.

Circle put together by puzzle pieces, with two hands helping build it.
