Deirdre Bowen

Associate Profesor
School of Law

Professor Bowen is amazing! She's always there for me — inside or out of the classroom. I recently lost a big summer employment opporunity due to COVID and Bowen was there to help me readjust, figure out how to respond, and what to be thankful for (health, friends/family/loved ones, livelihood, etc.). She is a positive person and and excellent professor that led us through the end of the appellate brief and oral arguments via Zoom. Did i mention she's hilarious?!

Outside of the classroom, she is doing amazing work with the DVPO pop up clinic partnering with King County POAP to help domestic violence survivors during these challenging times when staying home is not safe for them. 

She also hosted an online happy hour with our legal writing class so we could socialize while social distancing. We played a game called mafia and hung out for ~3 hours. Glad to have her around SU/Sullivan Hall.

Joe Ricci


Joe, a philosophy professor, hosts dress-up days where we are invited to change our zoom background and dress according to a theme for our classes! He has put a bright twist on an unfortunate situation with the pandemic and remote instruction.
