The volunteer project team consisted of 7 Millersville University students–both at the undergraduate and graduate levels–and 5 faculty members. The volunteer university students included: Alex Arnold, Lauren Cameron, Abigail Gruber, Hunter Mengel, Victoria Mueller, Taylor Payne, and Kyle Thomas. The volunteer faculty members included: Katie Barrett, Libby Nelson, Tatiana Pashkova-Balkenhol, Stephanie Pennucci, and Marilyn Parrish.
Appropriately, the APSCUF Strike Team interviewed 37 narrators in total. Interviews consisted of 7 students, 24 faculty members, and 7 administrators/staff members. The 7 students included: Ryan Bankert, Christina Clawson, Connor Devlin, Abigail Gruber, Katie Lundy, John Schoenewald, and Marcus Wardle. The 24 faculty members included: Kathryn Allen, Ana Borger-Grecco, Kirsten Bookmiller, Line Bruntse, Jeanne Cassidy, Barry David, Robyn Davis, Alex DeCaria, Sandra Deemer, Oliver Dreon, Christine Filippone, Shauna Frischkorn, Laurie Hanich, Elizabeth Katz, John McLarnon, Thomas Neuville, Beth Powers (Costello), Alex Redcay, Greg Seigworth, Carrie Smith, Kenneth Smith, Robert Spicer, Kathleen Walsh, and Melissa Gold. The 7 administrators/staff members included: Jeff Adams, Pete Anders, Kim Martin, Michelle Perez, David Ramsay, Andrew Welaish, and D’Ann Ressler.
To ensure each transcription accurately captured the interviewee's response, a team of 4 Millersville students, and 1 staff member, reviewed each typed transcription against its audio file. The 4 students included: Abigail Gruber, Adam Omar, Alex Slick and Ashley Sherman; the staff member was Marilyn Parrish. Edited transcripts were then sent to their respective owners, who proceeded to review the information.
The final step involved the creation of the exhibit. Working together, Ashley Sherman and Adam Omar assembled the layout of each page, selecting useful audio clips, meaningful quotes, and momentous pictures. Adam proceeded to construct a hands-on timeline for the strike using Neatline. The timeline included an interactive map and links for further information. Ashley continued to review each transcript for key themes and details. She used this information to compose a comprehensive narrative for every page of the exhibit.
