The College is proud to announce that EPSP Assistant Professor Jameson D Lopez has been selected for The University of Arizona Early Career Scholars Award! This award was established to acknowledge outstanding early career faculty who are at the forefront of their disciplines and make highly valued contributions to the teaching, creative activity and service priorities set out in the University's Strategic Plan.
Lopez was selected by a committee of distinguished UArizona faculty because of his innovative accomplishments in research, teaching and service. The committee was especially impressed by the crucial contributions and cultural approaches of his scholarship, which have advanced quantitative empiricism within Indigenous populations. His unique approach and contributions using Indigenous statistics enhances data sovereignty.
In such a short period of time since he started at the College, he has reached indescribable innovation and contributed to new models for Native American persistence in higher education. Congratulations, JD!
