Geography alumnus Sam Nowak (BA, 2013) was recently featured in an article in the Perspectives Newsletter of the College of Arts and Science. Sam was recognized for his research on social justice and King County Metro’s discontinuation of the Ride Free Area, as well as for his achievement of the 2013 A&S Dean’s Medal in the Social Sciences. See the full story here.
We recently shared an alumni profile of Britt Yamamoto, a 2007 alum of the University of Washington and current director of iLEAP. You can see that profile here. However, it seems that we are not the only ones interested in what Britt has been up to since graduating. Tom Paulson of Humanosphere, a Seattle-based news service focusing on global health and poverty, recently spent some time at iLEAP and published a fantastic article on the organization’s work. Among other things, he describes iLEAP as performing “quiet, boring work in support of revolution.” Check out the whole article here, or iLeap’s website here!
