Annette Troxel, Budget Analyst, College of Professional Studies

Corrina Wells, Coordinator and Lecturer, School of Education

Corrina has contributed to our campus in innumerable ways: in violence and sexual assault prevention; and peer health education. They are a leader on the Campus/Community Dialogue on Race committee. They have educated our students in the first-year writing program and have engaged in activism that transforms our campus climate. They have given innumerable hours, and they’ve been a transformative leader on our campus from the time of their undergraduate and graduate coursework into their full-time staff roles. They currently lead the Promotorx Scholars (HSI grant-funded program), a program they’ve built in collaboration from the ground up. Their work has been characterized by ingenuity, resourcefulness, and responsiveness in collaboratively constructing dynamic programs.
