chandler blountStudent Spotlight

Chandle Blount
Meet Chandler Blount, political science and sociology double major and Solutions Scholar"I lived in Draper, Utah for all of my life. Some of my favorite things to do are; spend time with friends and family, attend plays, and try new restaurants.  I am currently a part of a Pre-Law cohort, and the University Supreme Court, in addition to the Solutions Scholars. I am excited to learn more every day in order to prepare myself for law school. I eventually want to practice in LGBT advocacy law.  I am beyond thrilled to create many friendships, memories, and solutions to the world’s problems in the University of Utah’s inaugural Solutions Scholars cohort. 

I was interested in solutions scholars because I have always been passionate about LGBT equal rights issues. As an aspiring lawyer, it is my firm belief that one of the most effective ways to change the social views and stigmas of the LGBT community is through the law. I was drawn to Solutions Scholars because it is an excellent program that enables students to incite change for the issues they are passionate about before they are involved in the professional world."

Fall 2018 Digests

Week of: September 24-28

ryan murdockStudent Spotlight

Ryan Murdock
Meet Ryan Murdock, psychology major and Solutions Scholar! "When I first heard about the Solutions Scholars, I was interested in the chance to work on real, important problems. I would like to do my part in attempting to address these vital issues. Aside from how research could help me, I believe that advancements in the social and behavioral sciences will be integral to improving society's future. I cannot think of anything more useful than being able to change human behavior in positive ways, and it looks like the Solutions Scholars program aims to do just that.

I grew up in American Fork, Utah, and I just recently moved to Salt Lake City. During my free time I play the guitar, read, and make generative art. I have just started working as a tutor for student athletes. In the future, I would like to go to graduate school in cognitive psychology."

taylor silkeyStudent Spotlight

Taylor Silkey
Meet Taylor Silkey, anthropology major! "I grew up in a military family, and I've lived in a few different places, so I don't really have a "hometown". But Utah has got to be one of my favorite places I've lived in so far! I love all of the outdoor activities it has to offer, like hiking and snowboarding. And I also love the University of Utah and the degree I'm pursuing. The classes I'm taking analyze how human evolution, culture, and psychology affect health, which I think is super interesting and important. I'm also minoring in Spanish because I think it's an absolutely beautiful language, and want to have as many excuses to practice it as I can. Plus: knowing Spanish opens up so many more opportunities for work, travel, service, and communication! I'm optimistic that both of these areas of study will properly prepare me for my long-term goal of becoming a genetic counselor."

mohan sudabattulaStudent Spotlight

Mohan Sudabattula
Meet Mohan Sudabattula, Health, Society & Policy and Philosophy double major. He'll be the first student to present on the TEDx Salt Lake City stage this Saturday! Mohan is founder and executive director of Project Embrace, an international medical nonprofit that aims to reduce global health disparities and promote sustainable healthcare. Project Embrace does this through the reuse and repurposing of previously owned medical equipment from the U.S. to meet the need of patients worldwide.

“Ten years ago, I visited an orphanage in India where children suffered from these exact same diseases (of U.S. patients), but didn’t have access to the medical devices needed to treat them. Those images stuck with me. So, I started Project Embrace, a non-profit that repurposes unwanted medical devices for patients-in-need abroad. Right from the beginning, I knew I wanted to partner with that orphanage.” Read more.
