The Latino Center for Health at UW hosted the inaugural Latinx Faculty Recognition Event on May 16, honoring the scholarly achievements of 19 Latina and Latino faculty across the tri-campuses of the University of Washington for 2016-2017.  See Photos

 

Faculty were recognized for meeting at least one of the following categories: promotion to associate professor or professor, publication of an article in a high impact journal, publication of a book, securing a major grant or retiring during or near the end of the academic year. 

 

“Today’s celebration is important as it makes visible the outstanding achievements, promotion and contributions of our Latina and Latino 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, to laboratories, to diverse communities and fields of practice, and throughout the world.  Of particular note, we are overjoyed that six honorees have been promoted during this academic year!”
