In May 2021, the Provost’s Office announced the cohort of SU faculty who successfully tenured and promoted in the 2020-2021 year. We are delighted that SU ADVANCE team member, NCFDD consultant, and eminent scholar, Angelique Davis, is now a Full Professor of Political Science at Seattle University!
In May 2021, we at SU ADVANCE were excited to learn that the Anthropology-Sociology Department at SU recognized the excellence of our undergraduate intern, Jo Walker. Jo has been named the recipient of the Fr. Eugene Buechel Award in Anthropology & Sociology. Jo graduates in June 2021 with degrees in Anthropology and French.
In June 2021, we were also very pleased to hear that our other intern, Keira Cruickshank, has been named a Naef Scholar. The Naef Scholarship Program provides support to upper-level undergraduate students who demonstrate commitment to social justice leadership. Keira certainly has shown these qualities in her work for SU ADVANCE over the past two years!
Our SU ADVANCE Research & Program Coordinator is a medical anthropologist by training, specializing in institution-based qualitative research. Prior to her work at Seattle University, Dr. Trainer conducted a multi-year clinical study of a bariatric program, which she wrote about in a recently published book, Extreme Weight Loss. She also talked about this research in a recent BBC radio interview, Fitness and Fatness.
