The Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs (AGLSP) honored David Townsend (center), an adjunct faculty member of the DrPH program at Fairbanks and longtime St. John’s tutor, with its annual faculty award: a recognition of superb faculty who teach and inspire students both within and outside the classroom. With his dedication to the liberal arts and his devotion to becoming what Stringfellow Barr called a “citizen of the world,” Townsend certainly meets the criteria. Fittingly, he considers the recipient—himself—the least important part of the deal.
The Health Services Management program hosted another successful Internship Interview Day for seniors seeking spring semester capstone internship experiences. The event was held virtually this year, due to COVID-19. Twelve internship sites participated representing a variety of healthcare settings and internship formats. Some internship sites will be hosting in-person interns while others will be hosting remote or hybrid interns. Internship matches were announced this week. If your organization is interested in interviewing students for a spring or summer internship, please reach out to Sarah Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
