Issue #5 Winter 2023

In this newsletter, after a brief greeting and update from our new department chair Professor Mary Bower-Russa, we introduce our two Assistant Chairs and newest faculty member. Following that we feature some faculty members’ outreach efforts in using their expertise to serve community-based projects and create opportunities for our students to apply knowledge in the real world. Professor Kristen Schrauben presents a current project about the Lakers working with students at the Boys and Girls Club, and Professors Gwenden Dueker and Jing Chen describe their work at Family Futures on building resilience against trauma. At the end, we feature the three panelists from the Alumni Career Paths Panel Discussion in Fall 2022.
