Today's Faculty Spotlight
Congratulations to Disability & Psychoeducational Assistant Professor Desiree Vega who was selected to be recognized as an Arizona Champion by COE Dean Johnson. A professor from every college will be honored during the Pac-12 Conference UA Men’s Basketball games.
Vega was honored during the Washington State vs. The University of Arizona Men’s Basketball game on February 9. UA President Robert Robbins gave her and a guest tickets to attend the game. She also was invited to a pre-game Wildcat Club VIP Reception.
Dean Johnson selected Vega because "she represents our college so well. She is one of very few school psychology scholars to focus on the challenges that students from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds face in their education, a critical issue in our country. She is able to work with faculty across our college in ways that are somewhat unusual for school psychologist professors. Her work is making an impact on her field, on our programs, and in our communities -- that is exactly what we expect of faculty in a college of education at a Hispanic-serving, land-grant, research university."
