‘Our Roots’ podcast featuring Rachelle Shurn now available 

This month’s edition of the “Our Roots Say That We’re Sisters” podcast honors the story of Rachelle Shurn, assistant engagement director and liaison to Marquette’s Black and Hispanic Alumni Associations. 

The “Our Roots Say That We’re Sisters” podcast series features women students, faculty, staff and alumnae of color who have exhibited leadership, positive impact or social change in their personal or professional roles, especially those who remain unsung “sheroes.” 

Associated with Marquette’s campus mural project, this project showcases the diversity, richness and complexity of our campus and provides a way for campus community members to see themselves and their potential elevated. It also makes visible the interconnected nature of the experiences and struggles of many women of color.

In this interview, Shurn talks about how her path brought her to Marquette, her work with Marquette women’s basketball, and the ways that she has supported inclusive efforts on campus and among alumni.
