As winter graduation nears, we checked in with some of our recent PhD graduates to see where they are and what they're up to!
Assistant Professor of Social Work and Director of Field Education
"I was so excited to begin working at Ursuline College this August. I teach BSW social work classes and help students find and navigate their field placement internships. I was really drawn to working at Ursuline because of its women-focused educational mission and small class sizes that allow for strong community-building."
NIH-Funded Postdoctoral Scholar
Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center Pediatric Research Training Program, University of Washington
"I am conducting research and writing publications—I'm not teaching. I'm working on transdisciplinary teams with researchers from a variety of disciplines and the projects I work on are broadly focused on injury and violence prevention research."
Graduate School of Social Work, University of Denver
"I successfully defended my dissertation a few weeks ago! And I have already started in a tenure-track assistant professorship position at the University of Denver. My research agenda is focused on health inequities in kidney disease and generally on mental and physical health disparities among older African American adults."
