Zainub Hussaini

Meet Zainub Hussaini, health, society and policy major and member of the class of 2019! She will be speaking at the undergraduate convocation ceremony on May 3. "I was born in Chicago, raised in Seattle, and now graduating in Salt Lake City! When I first began at the U, I was determined to study biomedical engineering. However, I found my passion in the College of Social and Behavioral Science. I will be receiving my degree from the University of Utah in health, society, and policy with a minor in sociology. My interest in community health started to grow after conducting research with Akiko Kamimura, associate professor of sociology. Our research study pertained to the shortage of primary care providers and how volunteering in a free clinic setting impacts physician assistant students’ inclination to pursue this direction. After I graduate, I hope to pursue and master’s degree in public health and healthcare administration. And, congrats to the class of 2019!"

Best of luck to Zainub and all of our graduates!

HIRS app home screen

Hate Incident Report System (HIRS) App

Thanks to Emily Nicolosi, geography Ph.D. candidate, and Richard Medina, assistant professor of geography, there is now an app for people to log incidents of hate.

It aims to bridge the gap between what people witness and what gets reported to police and, later, the FBI, which releases an annual report on hate crimes.

Users can submit reports anonymously or with contact information in case follow up is needed.

The app launched in the Google Play store earlier this month and will be in the Apple App Store soon.

Lace Padilla
Meet Lace Padilla! She recently finished her Ph.D. in Psychology's Cognition and Neural Science Program and will be speaking at the graduate convocation ceremony on May 2. "As a Latina and Native American woman from rural Colorado with dyslexia, I never believed that I could become a scientist. At the U, I received amazing mentorship from advisors Sarah Creem-Regehr, Jeanine Stefanucci, and William Thompson, who helped me attain a Ph.D., an NSF-postdoctoral award, and tenure-track assistant faculty offers. I was able to find a path in academia because individuals took a personal interest in my academic growth and helped me build the courage to pursue my dreams. My time at the U is a testament to outstanding mentorship from numerous faculty across the Psychology and Computer Science departments. I look forward to mentoring students with the same personal investment and care that helped me see my potential." Best of luck to Lace and all of our graduates!

Leota Coyne

Meet Leota Coyne, triple major in environmental and sustainability studies, geography, and urban ecology. She was recently awarded the Chevron Foundation-Undergraduate Research Scholarship by UROP!

"Receiving the Chevron Foundation scholarship for the summer 2019 semester allows me to continue my research on the collapse of ancient civilizations in Ethiopia. Working with Professor Power from the Natural History Museum and Department of Geography for a third semester, we are focusing on sedimentary evidence of long-term impacts from the rise and fall of the Aksumite Empire in northern Ethiopia and Eritrea. My research focuses on ~3000-year long sediment sequence, including changes in soil organic content and soil minerals, that captures the rise and fall of the Aksumite period. I hope to provide evidence of landscape legacies from the intensification of dry-land agriculture and burning practices recorded in soils through time. I hope this Chevron Foundation scholarship will allow me to provide additional insight on what happened to the Aksumite and, more importantly, what broader lessons can we learn from the rise and fall of past human societies."

FCS 2400-090 | Modern Family: A Life Course Perspective

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to topical issues and perspectives surrounding the modern family. This course examines how the institution of the family not only shapes individual lives but also how the family itself, its forms and functions, is influenced by larger social forces. We will examine the social significance of the American family by looking at how families have varied across American history, social groups, and social contexts. It is hoped that through discussion and debate about family-related issues, that students will be able to critically evaluate how social structure and social change have impacted the family, and what these changes mean for society and individuals.

The joint program is perfect for my goals and I am gaining a comprehensive and thorough education that is challenging me to question my biases and think critically about many different angles of policy, advocacy, and working with marginalized persons.

"I am a professional victim's advocate and sexual assault crisis counselor, a mother of five wonderful children (plus one amazing daughter-in-law) and five darling grandchildren.

junfu zhaoStudent Spotlight

Junfu Zhao

Meet Junfu Zhao! “I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in economics. I chose economics as my graduate major because economics could help me understand the dynamics of human society and thereby provide instructions on how to make a better world.

I was born in a small county in the middle of China. As I moved from the county to the nearest city and then to Beijing for education, I witnessed the diametrically different life trajectories experienced by my primary-school classmates, high-school classmates, and university classmates. This was a manifestation of the uneven development of China’s society during the last 40 years. I was lucky because I got the mere chance to escape my poor county and eventually traveled to the US for higher education. I would like to go back to China after my graduation and would like to devote my knowledge and energy to making a more equal society in China."

I am the first member of my family to attend college so being here for my second is such an amazing experience. I'm Polynesian so a big part of my culture is family and they are one of my main motivators for going to school. I aspire to be a doctor, leaning towards the orthopedics field. I want to go into medicine because I want to be one of the select few that sacrifice years of their own life to ensure that others can live their best healthy lives.

hannah samowitz

My name is Hannah Samowitz, and I am a fourth-year undergraduate studying Psychology and Spanish. This year, I've been awarded the Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher Award for CSBS. My research uses the lens of environmental psychology to look at how we can motivate Utahns to engage with and support organizations that work towards cleaner air. Here in the Salt Lake Valley, we suffer from harmful levels of PM2.5 in our air, which poses short- and long-term health risks. Non-profit groups like HEAL Utah are working with local businesses and lawmakers to promote policies that would improve our air quality, but they rely on support from individual people. Results from my research show that reminding people of SLC’s air pollution problem via photos increases the amount of money they would donate to HEAL Utah, but this effect can only be seen among people with a deep attachment to natural areas in and around Salt Lake City.

ben dahn

My name is Ben Danh and I grew up here in Northern Utah! I’m currently a senior studying Sociology as a major and Economics and Anthropology as minors with a Diversity certificate. A field that I genuinely love learning about and immersing myself in is poverty and inequality. Not only does poverty and inequality tie my major and all of my minors together, it also brings in political, cultural, and social issues that exist in or society today.  I decided to follow this path because as a first generation child of a single mother, I know how difficult it could be to excel socially and academically and I wish to help out those with similar backgrounds. As I delve deeper into the fields of academic advising and student affairs, the more I fall in love with helping others grow professionally and cultivating their interest and passions!

My name is Samira Gholami and I am third year pre-medical student studying Health, Society, and Policy with a minor in Nutrition. I was awarded the FLAS scholarship for the 17-18 academic year in Persian and let me just say, this experience has been بسیار خوب. I grew up learning both Persian (Farsi) and English at the same time, which resulted in a hybrid language our family has aptly termed "Finglish" (Farsi-English). 

The FLAS scholarship has accented my interest in pursuing medicine wonderfully because it has allowed me to take language classes that will benefit me on my journey to becoming a translator for Persian speaking patients both at the Maliheh Free Clinic and ultimately, through my work as a physician in order to better connect with patients.

PSY 2120-090: Memory & Cognition in Everyday Life

Ever wonder how you are able to remember important events or names of family and friends (or why you are so bad at it)? Or what you can do to improve your memory? We have an extraordinary array of mental abilities that allow us to learn, remember and sometimes forget new things that we encounter in everyday life. This course is designed to investigate these abilities, how they operate in everyday life, and why they sometimes don't work. To better illustrate how memory and cognition operate in everyday life, the course includes vivid demonstrations and examples of those abilities.  At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to define several complex aspects of cognition and memory (e.g., What is attention?  What is forgetting?  What is false memory?) and will understand the fundamental relationship between the brain and these behaviors. This course is taught each Spring semester by Dr. Kristina Rand.

christopher willis

My name is Sarah Frederick and I’m a sophomore majoring in anthropology and minoring in business. I hope to graduate with my honors degree and go on to law school. I’ve known for a long time that CSBS was where I belonged – even before I figured out the right path for me! I have a passion both for working with people and learning about them, and I’m able to do both in this college. I currently serve as an ambassador within CSBS and could not be more grateful for the opportunities I’ve been given and the people that I’ve met.

My name is Christopher Willis and I am a senior majoring in sociology with an emphasis in criminology. I am preparing to apply to law school and eventually work for the government as a prosecutor and administrative consultant. I am a transfer student from SLCC from which I received my Associate of Science in Criminal Justice. Transferring to the University of Utah was exceptionally smooth and I was able to fit comfortably in the sociology/criminology program. The education and opportunities provided by CSBS have exponentially increased my knowledge, my excitement, and my determination. I currently serve as an ambassador for this great college, the best part of which is getting to know and help other students navigate the many choices and issues they face and encouraging them to dream and to dream big!


Look for the Helpers

mr. rogers

When he was young and would see terrible things in the news, Mr. Rogers said his mom would comfort him by saying, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” He added “I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world.”

Become a helper with an organization from this list.

My name is Carly Shields and I am a junior majoring in Human Development, emphasis in Child Life. I hope to become a pediatrician. Unlike many pre-med students, a major in the sciences wasn't the right fit for me. With my passion and interest in children and their development I found the perfect major for me in CSBS. My major gives me a unique perspective that will help make me a better pediatrician one day. Within CSBS I serve as a college ambassador and on the FCS Student Advisory Committee. This semester I received UROP funding to research  Autism and experiences in the healthcare setting in the FCS department.
