Congratulations to Valda Black, who won a National Science Foundation (NSF) Dissertation Improvement Grant. She previously received a grant from the National Geographic Society to support her research on changes to community structure and kinship during the Late Intermediate Period due to Inca influence in Andahuaylas, Peru. Black teaches various courses in anthropology at the CCS Pullman Center.
We are excited about a new service agreement between CCS and WSU, which gives SFCC Pullman students in need access to the excellent food pantry managed by WSU’s Center for Civic Engagement. We are deeply grateful for the support and collaboration of our WSU colleagues, Ben Calabretta, Merri Lecoq, Jessica Perone, and Natalie Reynolds, who made this agreement possible.
We are thankful for the expertise and enthusiasm of Ana Maria Kodama and Geri Winters, academic advising colleagues at WSU. They joined our fall quarter SFCC2WSU transfer admission event for SFCC students hosted by Pullman Center advisor Dr. Mateja Lončar on November 8. Ana Maria and Geri made the journey to WSU clear and exciting for our students.
