Justice and Peace Studies

We face complex challenges in our world today. I adamantly believe that those challenges can be met, but only if we engage the talents, strengths and perspectives of all members of our community. I work at the Dougherty Family College because the college actively seeks to empower all voices, especially those that are often ignored or minimalized in the work and conversations about meeting our global challenges. As a faculty group, we develop curriculum that exposes the classism, racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia and other oppressive cultural traditions that contribute to the lack of equity in our society, and that gives students the innovative skills to live, work and succeed in a diverse and complex global community.

I graduated from the University of St. Thomas in 2004, and my years on campus were some of the best of my life. As a Tommie, I had faculty and mentors who believed in me, who challenged me, and who expected me to go out and make a difference in the world. I hope my students at Dougherty Family College can say the same thing when they graduate.

My current research revolves around incorporating cultural humility and the poetics of identity in the composition classroom. I am also working on a collection of poetry that explores the complicated personal relationship each of us has with injustice and social responsibility.
