I am passionate about civic engagement, in which students connect course curriculum with purposeful reflection and meaningful work in broader communities. I seek to facilitate students’ discovery of ways to use their knowledge and expertise in order to positively affect populations around them. I believe that civic engagement provides a forum for all voices to be heard, and I am committed to creating rich environments where this polyphony can take shape.
