Emily Dean will be an Associate Professor of Anthropology in the History, Sociology, and Anthropology department. She arrived at SUU in Fall of 2006. After receiving a double BA degree in English and Anthropology from the University of Oregon, she completed her Ph.D. in Anthropology in 2005 at the University of California, Berkeley. Since her arrival at SUU, Emily has created and implemented the Anthropology minor, and served on a wide array of departmental, college, and university committees. These ranged from a three year stint on Faculty Senate and two years as faculty representative on the Staff Association Executive Board, to service on departmental and college curriculum committees, college IRB committees, hiring committees, and advisory panels for the Outdoor Engagement Center, Undergraduate Research, and the Women and Gender Studies, Sustainability, and Ethnic Studies programs. She has also volunteered with various community and professional organizations.
“If elected faculty senate president elect, I will do my best to be accessible to faculty across campus and to help create an atmosphere of friendly and open exchange at faculty senate meetings. I appreciate outgoing president Steve Barney’s frequent email updates on senate matters and his office hours in the Centrum and would shamelessly emulate these initiatives. I am especially interested in issues of due-process for non-tenured faculty, protecting academic freedom, recognizing and rewarding faculty efforts in implementing experiential education, and creating a more inclusive and diverse campus community.”
Andrew Marvick is an Associate Professor of Art History at Southern Utah University. He grew up in Los Angeles, received his BA at Harvard University, his MA at UCLA and PhD at Columbia University. Before coming to SUU in 2005, Andy taught at UCLA, at several Cal. State campuses and at Southwestern Oklahoma State University. He is also a painter (www.andrewmarvick.com), with credentials from the Simi Academy in Florence. As a scholar, his field of specialization is the turning point from late nineteenth-century Symbolism to early modern abstraction in Europe and America. He has published on the art of Waterhouse, Khnopff, Mondrian and numerous other fin-de-siècle and transitional early 20th-century artists.
“Aside from a two-year stint as director of the Braithwaite Gallery, I have no experience in administrative or executive work. I cannot give the voters any real assurance of my competence, should they choose to elect me. But I would certainly do my best; and I can at least promise that, insofar as it were discernible to me, I would make the interest of all SUU's faculty my absolute priority.”
