Congratulations to Jonathan, Griffin, and Daniel!
SAFS undergraduate student Ariel Delos Santos is featured on the UW website:
‘Senior Ariel Delos Santos was one of the students in Born’s fall class which looked at connectivity and community place-making in Auburn.
“Working with the LCY program brought a novel component to our educational experience. Instead of a standard classroom setting where our homework is only seen by the professor, our final products were intimately tied to the city and its community members – which greatly motivated us to do more work and be more attentive to those who will be affected,” said Delos Santos, a senior double major in Community, Environment & Planning and Aquatic Fishery & Sciences.

As part of the Q Center’s Qolors celebration we are hosting a day long Intentional Life Planning Retreat for students: https://intentionallifeplanningstudentsuccess2017.eventbrite.com/. This is a great opportunity for marginalized students to get grounded personally and professionally in your own inner compasses, to find clarity in
your direction, and build achievable goals that speak to your values.
The Q Center is offering their space and is sponsoring up to 8 students.

SAFS postdoctoral researcher Sean Anderson and SAFS professor Trevor Branch are featured in UW Today:
‘Black swan events are rare and surprising occurrences that happen without notice and often wreak havoc on society. The metaphor has been used to describe banking collapses, devastating earthquakes and other major surprises in financial, social and natural systems.
A new analysis by the University of Washington and Simon Fraser University is the first to document that black swan events also occur in animal populations and usually manifest as massive, unexpected die-offs.
Explore the graphic novel as a medium for personal and collective memory making. Ask questions about how visual narratives help tell stories and preserve memories.
The course uses Jewish-authored graphic novels – from Art Spiegelman’s Maus to Vanessa Davis’ Make Me a Woman – to offer a specific focus and context for the history of the art form and universal themes about memory, trauma and belonging.
Please share this fantastic opportunity with your students! Students will get a chance to be taught by an exceptional faculty who is the only instructor teaching this course. ARCTIC 401 subjects are changed every year based on the visiting fulbright expertise. Students may not get to take another class like this!
Our incoming UW 2016-17 Canada Visiting Fulbright Chair in Arctic Studies, Kent Moore, will be teaching the core course for the Arctic Studies Minor, ARCTIC 401: Introduction to Arctic Climate System.
