Dear Arts and Sciences Alumni and Friends,
We are coming to the end of the 2020-21 academic year. We hope and expect this will be the only full year within the pandemic and are planning a broad return to campus in the Fall Quarter. You will see below that we have continued to pursue our academic mission in the face of the unparalleled challenges.
We have highlighted one of several initiatives connecting science and the humanities, in the work of Dr. Benjamin Schultz-Figueroa.
As we anticipate a return to Study Abroad later in the coming academic year, we have a retrospective of the amazing photos our students took in their travels around the world prior to the pandemic.
We are also welcoming the Master of Arts in Couples and Family Therapy to the College of Arts and Sciences this fall, when it and the Master of Social Work program will participate in a major, statewide multi-university behavioral health training grant from the Ballmer Group.
You will also see Dr. Quinton Morris’s exciting new program Unmute the Voices that will feature music and performances of BIPOC composers and performances, premiering on Juneteenth on KING-FM.
And, there’s more in our student, alumni and faculty sections. Our faculty, staff and students have continued to follow their passions and our mission through a remarkably difficult time and I am so proud to share how we are moving forward.
Dr. Benjamin Schultz-Figueroa, Assistant Professor, Film Studies, recently talked to the College of Arts and Sciences Leadership Council, a group of alumni and community leaders who act as an advisory board to the Dean, about the intersection of humanities and technology. Recognizing the potential for students to explore entirely new ways of working in his Film Studies classes, he creates opportunities to develop interdisciplinary work between the arts and science. This article is based on his conversation with the Council, faculty, and staff.
In 2018, the Institute for the Future—a nonprofit educational and research organization—predicted that by the year 2030 85% of today’s college students will be employed in jobs that do not currently exist. To reiterate: in less than a decade, 85% of our students will be doing work that has not yet been invented. [That’s a lot!] Much of the most exciting work I do as a teacher is aimed at equipping students for this uncertain future when traditional disciplinary structures may no longer hold. So, even though I am an Assistant Professor of Film Studies, I have sought to teach across scholarly boundaries, including classes listed in Environmental Science and Environmental Studies, and I have worked closely with biology and nursing majors as well as those in the arts and humanities. In this work, it is my overarching belief that teaching must prepare students for a future moment defined by the scientific discourses of computation, environmental health, and ecology—a moment when media literacy and film studies must extend beyond narrative and theatrical entertainment.
In our article, “Things to Come: Teaching Film Studies for our Scientific Future,” my coauthor—and former student—Danny Tayara and I ask, “What might it take to imagine scientific laboratories as potential worksites for film studies students?” Tayara’s story attests to the potential of this type of interdisciplinary teaching.
For an assignment in a class that I taught on the overlap between Science and Film, Tayara began researching informational aesthetics at the University of Washington’s Department of Astronomy, where Dr. Rory Barnes has developed a program called VR Ulysses that uses virtual reality to visualize large data sets. Based off of the political, historical, and visual lessons from film studies that Tayara was getting in my class, they began making suggestions to Barnes about the selection of data, the control of the VR headset, and the marketing of the device to underserved audiences, which eventually led VR Ulysses to create a formal, shareholding position for Tayara. In this example, which is one among several I could point to, Tayara essentially created a job for themself where none had existed previously, precisely the kind of opportunity that interdisciplinary work between the arts and sciences can foster.
In the past three years, since I have joined the SU community, I have worked to develop a program that can create such opportunities for students. This has involved projects that are both granularly small and college-wide. In conjunction with my Science and Film class, I worked with librarians at Lemieux to create a database of online scientific media, which includes a guided walkthrough for humanities students who are researching scientific topics and who are often looking at understudied media. This website became a resource for colleagues at other institutions teaching similar science and film classes.
Among the projects students produced for this class were two video essays dealing with the history and politics of psychological testing, an in-depth investigation of the cinematic representation of malaria during World War II, an analysis of government public health films created to popularize the Clean Air Act, and a study of the representation of gender in early sex education films. Nearly all of these projects worked with films that had never been written about previously, allowing undergraduate students to break new intellectual and historical ground in their research.
Given the pressing need for greater scientific communication, especially around the issue of climate change, I believe that work like this—which explores both past methods of visualizing and popularizing science and suggests new possibilities for doing so in the present—is vitally important. There is a real need for students like Tayara who can speak knowledgably about the history, aesthetics, and ethics of scientific media and data visualization. My hope is that the film studies program here at SU will be at the forefront of training such students.
Dr. Benjamín Schultz-Figueroa is an Assistant Professor in Film Studies at Seattle University. His research focuses on the history of scientific filmmaking, nontheatrical film, and animal studies. His book The Celluloid Specimen: Moving Image Research into Animal Life is due to be published by UC Press in 2022. (Images above, Dr. Benjamin Schultz-Figueroa; Danny Tayara, Film Studies '20.)

“Imagining the World highlights our college's participation in the global community. Through this contest, students, faculty, and staff capture more than a moment in their experience – they share a very personal window into the world they explore.” – 2020 Virtual Gallery
When Kathleen La Voy, Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs, started the annual Imagining the World photo exhibit, it was with the desire to show Seattle University as an international college. Held in October of 2008, students who were enrolled in the University’s Study Abroad program submitted photos of moments that told a story about their overseas experience.
“I love students,” said La Voy, who was, at the time, Associate Dean in the College of Arts and Sciences, “What a way to get to know who they are! In the case of photos, you’re actually looking through someone else’s eyes. We talk about walking in their shoes but looking through their eyes is really something.”
Taking over the quad, the winning photo, along with “honorable mentions” were projected on large screens. October in Seattle tends to bring damp, cold weather, which would have halted the whole experience. But, for this first year, the weather was perfect. Several ethnic restaurants provided food and tables were set up with various items to really bring an international festivity to it.
“We had all these people, “ La Voy remembers, “you don’t realize how much the campus is utilized by the neighbors. It was so much fun to open up and bring the community in.”
The following year, the event was moved indoors, in consideration for our wet, Seattle Octobers, and the decision was made to include an additional contest to feature local photos taken by Seattle University international students: “We are abroad to them”, according to La Voy.
Sonora Jha, current Associate Dean for Academic Community, College of Arts and Sciences, feels the same way: “It’s not just about looking outward at the ‘exotic other’ but that (to international students) we are also the ‘exotic other’, if there even is such a thing.”
Later a Faculty category was added to increase perspectives to be displayed.
Many photographers, through this annual contest and exhibition, ended up finding permanence on campus. As La Voy says, “the photographs weren’t just beautiful, they were also a great reminder that, at Seattle U, student stories are what matter.” Visitors to campus can see work all over buildings like Vi Hilbert Hall, among others.
“The photos are about connection, rather than ‘othering’”, explains Jha, “I think that it was wonderful students could go into different parts of the world and you can almost see that they recognize their place in it.”
Indeed, when looking through the retrospective, we can see the incredibly rich diversity in architecture, landscape, and even clothing among the photos. Yet, looking at the faces, expressions, and actions of the subjects, we can also see that we have much more in common.
Sadly, due to the pandemic, travel is halted and the in-person experience will not take place at this time. Yet, as things continue to open and revive, there is hope. When asked about her thoughts on our virtual retrospective, Jha said, “I think it’s important (that this virtual exhibit takes place) as a way to acknowledge the sadness of our imposed distance and yet serve up good memories, like a window to look out of as we dream of once again roaming all over the world.”
Earlier this year, Seattle University Provost Shane P. Martin announced that the Master of Arts in Couples and Family Therapy (MACFT) program will move to the College of Arts and Sciences effective July 1, 2021.
Due to the changing landscape in theological higher education, Seattle University announced the difficult decision to close Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry. While some programs are ending, with teach out plans in place for current students, it was determined that the MACFT program should continue. Building on the strengths of STM’s pastoral counseling program, the program transitioned to training couples and family therapists (2012). The MACFT program achieved Commission on the Accreditation of Marriage and Family Therapy Education (COAMFTE) accreditation in May 2014. After significant review, the university concluded that the program fits best within the College of Arts and Sciences.
David V. Powers, PhD, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, said, “The MACFT program aligns with the College’s mission to provide students with an excellent holistic education in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and professional disciplines to develop and nurture a vision for a more just and humane world. They are a welcome addition to our portfolio of graduate programs.”
The College of Arts and Sciences offers seven other graduate programs in arts leadership, criminal justice, kinesiology, nonprofit leadership, psychology, public administration, and social work.
Christie Eppler, PhD, LMFT, Program Director and Professor, said “The MACFT program is excited to continue our work of training compassionate and competent systemic therapists who have the skills to treat clients from across social locations. We look forward to training therapist who bolster clients’ resilience. Couples and family therapy education aligns with the College of Arts and Sciences’ vision to train knowledgeable, creative, and Jesuit-informed graduates. Continuing students will continue to learn from current faculty who interweave faith and culture into clinical care.”
Seattle University is accepting applications to the Master of Arts in Couples and Family Therapy for Fall 2022 and beyond. There is no fee for new applications through Fall 2022. Learn more here.
Seattle University graduate programs invited to participate in broad, collaborative response to state’s behavioral health crisis that aims to bolster workforce, resources across Washington through UW-led programs.
The University of Washington announced that the School of Social Work and Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and the Behavioral Health Institute at Harborview Medical Center are part of a transformational $38 million set of gifts from Ballmer Group to support a broad, collaborative response to the state’s behavioral health crisis.
Seattle University is one of a number of colleges and universities in the state participating in this effort through graduate student financial assistance provided by the Ballmer Group gifts. The grants will support students in multiple accredited graduate programs in mental health counseling and social work in our state, including Seattle U’s Master of Social Work; Master of Arts in Couples and Family Therapy; and Master of Education in Counseling, Clinical Mental Health.
“We are very proud to be among the colleges and universities who will be part of this collaborative response to Washington state’s behavioral health crisis,” said Seattle University Provost Shane P. Martin. “This effort aligns perfectly with Seattle University’s commitment to educating the whole person, to professional formation and to empowering leaders for a just and humane world."
“This is a transformational moment in developing the Behavioral Health Workforce in our state and I am grateful that our students are included,” said Dr. David V. Powers, Dean, College of Arts and Sciences. “We thank the Ballmer Group for their generosity and the University of Washington for their leadership.”
“The SU Master of Social Work program specializes in social justice-focused and community-based advanced clinical social work education. As our mission is to advance equity in access to excellent care, our program is perfectly positioned to play a key role in transforming our statewide behavioral health system,” said Dr. Hye-Kyung Kang, Director of the MSW program and Chair of Social Work. “This is an extraordinary opportunity to support talented, passionate students in achieving their goals to make real impact in their communities while relieving them of debt as they move into their careers.”
“We prepare our graduates to clinically heal and empower individuals and relationships from intersecting social locations – ethnicities, gender identities, faith traditions,” said Dr. Christie Eppler, Director of the Master of Arts in Couples and Family Therapy program. “As we transition to our two-year degree, this is an exciting opportunity to make a difference in behavioral health around the state.”
The UW School of Social Work will coordinate a major component of Ballmer Group’s investment, $24.8 million designed to expand the diversity and numbers of well-prepared, debt-relieved students graduating from the state’s master’s programs in social work and mental health counseling who go on to work in community-based behavioral health programs. These programs serve individuals and families who face poverty and severe, long-term mental health or substance-use challenges.
More than 400 graduate students from approximately 13 colleges and universities across the state will receive more than $21 million in financial assistance over the next five years, supporting a graduate- level clinical education that, for many, would not otherwise be financially feasible.
Participating graduate students will receive grants to offset the high costs of graduate education in return for committing to work for three years in the behavioral health system. Participating graduate schools will partner closely with agencies to design clinical education tailored to meeting the needs of clients, strengthen student internships, and provide career placement and mentoring to support sustained careers in behavioral health services.
The gifts aim to address the state of Washington’s serious workforce shortage in the community behavioral health system, in large part by supporting statewide education and training innovations at partner institutions developed through the University of Washington. The new grants come on the heels of Gov. Jay Inslee’s historic behavioral health bill signing Thursday which recognized the severity of the crisis and celebrated new investments.
Washington state currently ranks among the lowest in the nation in serving people with mental health challenges. The needs are vast and far-reaching, with Washingtonians experiencing common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety, serious and persistent disorders such as schizophrenia, or addiction to alcohol or other substances. In addition, nearly a quarter of adults with a mental illness reported not being able to access care, which is only being exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis.
The state Legislature responded to the urgent need during its recently completed session with unprecedented investments in Washington’s behavioral health system. The Legislature’s commitments included $200.5 million for a new 150-bed behavioral health teaching facility on UW Medical
Center’s Northwest campus, in addition to an expanded psychiatry residency program and a statewide 24/7 psychiatric consultation program. Legislators also designated nearly $170 million to support community behavior health providers, mobile crisis response teams throughout the state, intensive case management and Homeless Outreach Stabilization, and one-time relief to ease the financial impact of COVID on providers.
Ballmer Group’s gifts will complement these investments through innovative and transformational approaches to growing and strengthening the state’s behavioral health workforce.
“The behavioral health crisis is all too real, and while it affects everyone in our state, this reality is compounded for communities of color. The same inequities that plague every American institution apply to our behavioral health system, which is designed to cater to wealthy white people. Further complications of stigma, cost, and a fundamental lack of system capacity to meet the growing need are woven throughout our current behavioral health infrastructure,” said Connie Ballmer, co-founder of Ballmer Group. “That’s why we were proud to partner with the University of Washington, state leaders, providers to lay a foundation for shifting our system through addressing workforce capacity, access and equity.”
