In 2007, Dr. Rosevelt Noble began the Lost in the Ivy project. He was inspired by notable African-American alum from Vanderbilt whose contributions and accomplishments were relatively unknown to current Vanderbilt students. To preserve the experiences of African-American students at Vanderbilt, he began conducting interviews with current Vanderbilt students and Vanderbilt alum. This project seeks to identify and understand common themes in these interviews.
