Swap AmplifyThis month, AMPLIFY host Jennifer Ciplet speaks with guests Nitin Beri and Heidi Harris, both undergraduate students at CU Boulder and leaders in the Swap program.

Swap is a student-run, grassroots initiative at CU Boulder that builds bridges of support and solidarity between Swap volunteers, campus employees, and international students in the Boulder community.

Swap brings together historically and systematically divided campus sectors – such as CU Boulder students and university janitorial and other staff - to share a common learning and cultural experience. Swap also provides conversation partners to CU International English Center (IEC) students, with the goal of helping provide our international friends with the tools to be productive and self-sufficient members of the Boulder community. Swap is a proud program of CU Engage.

Thanks so much for listening!

AMPLIFY: Stories of University-Community Collaborations is a production of CU Engage, the Center for Community-Based Learning and Research at CU Boulder, in partnership with independent community radio KGNU. The show aims to amplify the voices of students and community partners who are working together to generate new knowledge and actions to address wicked public challenges.

You can listen to AMPLIFY live on KGNU every fourth Wednesday of the month at 9am. 

You can also access each show from this webpage, as well as listen to occasional AMPLIFY Bonus Content, where we continue the conversation beyond what we were able to fit into our time on the air.
