NASPA - Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education has invited Rebecca Morrow, director of the Idaho State University Anderson Gender Resource Center, to join the organization for a summer post-doctoral internship.
NASPA is the leading voice for student affairs administration, policy, and practice, and affirms the commitment of the student affairs profession to educating the whole student and integrating student life and learning.
During her internship, Morrow will be assisting NASPA Executive Director Gwendolyn Dungy, and NASPA Avatar for Special Projects, JoEllen Barnhart, in major national projects concerning student services. One area of particular emphasis will be best practices for veterans affairs.
“Dr. Morrow is a stellar example of our country’s growing leadership talent in student services,” Barnhart said. “Her experience in Washington, DC will give her an amazing opportunity to view and participate in the field of student services from a national perspective.”
Morrow has been the director of the Idaho State University Anderson Gender Resource Center, a unit located within Student Affairs, since September 2002. Prior to her arrival at ISU, her gender center work took an international emphasis during a 2001-02 Fulbright Fellowship at the Gender Studies Centre at Vilnius University in Lithuania. She also served from 1999 through 2001 as assistant to the director at the Institute for Research and Education on Women and Gender at the State University of New York at Buffalo, the institution from which she earned her Ph.D. An anthropologist by training, Morrow has conducted two grant-funded fieldwork projects in Ireland. She received her undergraduate degrees in anthropology and music performance from Oberlin College.
Founded in January 1919, NASPA is the foremost professional association for student affairs administrators, faculty, and graduate and undergraduate students with more than 1,000 members at 1,400 campuses, and representing 29 countries.
