Last week, Dean Eddie Uehara extended a warm welcome to six new faculty members who joined the School this fall. During an orientation, the new hires received an overview of the School’s research strengths and depth in a briefing provided by Cy Talebi, assistant director of finance and research, and Karina Walters, professor and associate dean for research.

Shown in the photo are (left to right): Cy Talebi, Jane Lee, Charles H. Lea, Dean Eddie Uehara, Angelique Day, Karina Walters, Ryan Petros and Danae Dotolo. (Justin Lerner is not pictured.)

Although these individuals come from both coasts and the Midwest, they share some outstanding qualities in common: a record of research and scholarship, a commitment to classroom excellence, and a passion for social change. Read more about their professional and educational backgrounds here. Please take the time to introduce yourself to each of our new faculty and welcome them to our community.
