33 Faculty Members Honored at 2019 Latinx Faculty Recognition Event
The Latino Center for Health hosted the 3rd Annual Latinx Faculty Recognition Event on May 2nd, honoring the scholarly achievements of 33 Latinx faculty across the tri-campuses of the University of Washington for 2018-2019. Twenty-four of the honorees were from the UW Seattle campus, five honorees from UW Bothell, and four honorees from UW Tacoma. Faculty were recognized for meeting at least one of the following criteria: promotion to associate professor or full professor, publication of an article in a high impact journal, publication of a book, fine arts production, securing a major grant, or retiring during or near the end of the academic year. In addition, Latinx faculty who have been promoted to significant leadership positions were also recognized this year.
Faculty members were honored in the presence of elected officials, community leaders, UW Regent Rogelio Riojas, deans, chairs, colleagues, family, friends, and students. This ceremony highlighted the incredibly diverse body of work and impactful contributions of the 33 honorees.
“This celebration makes visible the outstanding achievements, promotion, mentorship and contributions of our Latinx faculty," said Gino Aisenberg, Associate Dean of the Graduate School and Co-Director of the Latino Center for Health. "Their impact resounds across the UW community, from classrooms and laboratories, to diverse communities and fields of practice, and throughout the world. We are particularly overjoyed that five honorees have been promoted to Associate Professor during this academic year!"
The Latino Center for Health, an interdisciplinary community-engaged research center, is housed administratively in the Department of Health Services in the School of Public Health at the University of Washington. The Center organized this event with support from the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity (OMA&D), the Office of Faculty Advancement, and Graduate Opportunities and Minority Achievement Program (GO-MAP).
