Congratulations to Dr. Madeline PÉrez on Recent Honor and New Appointment
Madeline Pérez, Ph.D., M.S.W., M.Phil., assistant professor of Social Work and Latino Community Practice at the University of Saint Joseph, has received several noteworthy distinctions that we would like to share:
- Dr. Pérez has been honored as one of three nationwide scholarship recipients selected by The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. She will participate in a 15-week scholarly writing boot camp which is facilitated by the National Center for Faculty Development & Diversity (NCFDD) and takes place throughout the fall of 2012. This program supports faculty who are looking for empirically-tested methods to improve research/scholarship productivity, intense accountability, and peer support to propel work-life balance and personal growth.
- As of July 1, 2012, Dr. Pérez has been appointed as the founding director of the Institute for Latino Community Practice at the University of Saint Joseph, which is committed to preparing undergraduate and graduate students for culturally and linguistically competent leadership in their professions and creating a community of learners dedicated to advancement of knowledge and best practices to serve the Latino population.
