Two faculty members leaving….

Two additional faculty members will not be returning next year, and we wish them the best.  After spBen Gonzalezending a year at UWT, Prof. Ben Gonzalez recently accepted a tenure track position at Highline Community College. “My time at UW Tacoma has been great and I will really miss working alongside all of the other wonderful members of faculty in PPPA and IAS. During my time here, one of the things I’ve appreciated the most is the diversity of the student body who brought a range of perspectives to our discussions of American politics that I consider invaluable. This has been a great year and I am looking forward to collaborating with UW Tacoma faculty when I am at Kimberly EarlesHighline.”

Prof. Kim Earles has been teaching for us for two years, and will be leaving UW Tacoma at the end of the spring quarter to pursue other career opportunities. “Thanks to my colleagues in PPPA for all of their help and mentorship in tackling the challenges of teaching and research, and thanks for their continued support and friendship as I end my time at UW Tacoma.”
