Clinical Associate Professor Julie Ribaudo was selected as the 2015 SSW Student Union Teacher of the Year. She will be recognized at the Student Awards Ceremony in March. Below are several student statements about Professor Ribaudo:
"Julie has such wisdom and compassion from her experiences and an amazing ability of teaching this wisdom in a way that is both clear and sensitive to the identities and unique needs of each student. She teaches her course content with a strong PODS lens and is mindful of the diverse experiences and identity intersectionalities of her students. I've learned so much in her courses thus far and want to take every mini course offered with her! Julie is truly the epitome of empathy and compassion!"
"She has so much passion for what she teaches that it rubs off on her students. She also has a huge depth of knowledge that anyone wanting to pursue social work would be lucky to be exposed to."
"Julie has been an amazing teacher. I have learned more from her in my classes than I have in any of my others. She creates an open, safe class environment where people feel comfortable speaking their minds and are able to build meaningful relationships with one another. She also was very helpful with the transition back into a school setting first semester, and was conscious and understanding of the fact that many people were having a difficult time transitioning."
