Lauren Schandevel

“When you can understand the history of the policies that shaped a place…you can really see how everything came to be.”

This episode of Strength in the Midst of Change features Lauren Schandevel, a U-M alum of the Ford School of Public Policy and creator of the crowd-sourced document, “Being Not-Rich at UM”, which serves as a guide for low-income students on campus. Lauren shares her experiences as a first-generation, low-income student, and speaks about public policy and community organizing.
