The Cal Lutheran Experience

Ideas have a life. When the life of ideas connects to the individual lives and experiences of students, I remember that ideas aren’t just abstractions. To remember that is to remember why I got into this business in the first place.

Global Studies

I fell in love with street art while studying abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Working with Dr. Fiore, I decided to focus on Latinas making street art in Los Angeles. This art form is male-dominated, but a small number of women are demonstrating incredible power in their craft. I wanted to meet these women, assess how their work was being received by their male counterparts, and learn how their involvement in this art form aided in the development of their self-identities. There is very little scholarly work being done in this area, so my project was the first of its kind.

Political Science

I want to teach and show students by example that Political Science is not only an academic discipline but also a field that can equip them with knowledge and skills that can have public impact outside the classroom and beyond their college experience.
