Naadiya Hasan, Julie Winterich Named CPPS Faculty Fellows
Sociology and Anthropology Department faculty Naadiya Hasan and Julie Winterich have been selected to receive 2013-14 Center for Principled Problem Solving Faculty Fellowships.
Naadiya, an assistant professor, will undertake a fellowship project directly related to her upper-level sociology course Women of Color in the United States. She and her students will expand the course to include civic engagement projects that address the consequences of intersecting social systems of race and gender within major social institutions.
These projects would connect to PPS goals by making explicit connections between scholarly analysis and application of that analysis to help transform how these intersecting systems impact various groups within those institutions.
Julie’s project will design and develop PPS-related experiences for Women’s and Gender Studies students through internships, service learning and research projects, study abroad experiences, and other projects relevant to WGSS students’ interests.
Julie, an associate professor, will work with the CPPS and other campus programs, such as the Multicultural Resource Center and the Bayard Rustin Center, and with academic programs, such as African-American studies, political science, religious studies, and sociology and anthropology, to create a stronger infrastructure within WGSS for PPS civic engagement projects.
Naadiya and Julie will work collaboratively on these projects in an effort to both expand and improve students’ PPS experiences and to bring programs and departments with shared content and goals into closer coordination.
CPPS Faculty Fellows, in addition to their particular projects, also participate in developing and promoting principled problem solving instructional, programming and community engagement resources.
The CPPS is an academic center dedicated to promoting engaged learning, teaching and scholarship motivated and shaped by Guilford’s core values of community, diversity, equality, excellence, integrity, justice and stewardship.
The CPPS Faculty Fellowship is designed and supported by the college to provide interested Guilford faculty with the time and resources necessary for undertaking an extended PPS project and to assume a leadership role in the life of the CPPS.
