The title of Erasmus Circle Fellow is one of the highest honors bestowed upon our faculty in the College of Education. Erasmus Circle Fellows are faculty leaders who have demonstrated excellence in their fields. They are nominated by their department heads and former Erasmus Circle Fellows, then selected by the College of Education National Advisory Board.
We are happy to announce this year’s Erasmus Circle Fellow, Department of Educational Policy Studies and Practice Assistant Professor Jameson David Lopez.
Lopez, an enrolled member of the Quechan tribe located in Fort Yuma, California, studies Native American education using Indigenous statistics and has expertise in the limitations of collecting and applying quantitative results to Indigenous populations. He carries unique experiences to his research that include a 2010 deployment to Iraq as a platoon leader where he received a Bronze Star Medal for actions in a combat zone.
Lopez has demonstrated integrity in research, instruction, and service. He inspires both colleagues and students alike!
