The CAPS Team is Growing!

Hello SoHE grad students! If we haven’t had the pleasure of meeting, I’m Cadin and I’m the new Graduate Program Specialist. I’m a 2020 alumna of UW’s History and Political Science departments, and I recently graduated of Boston University’s Wheelock College of Education with my Master’s in Education. I’ll be working with Michelle to support the amazing work you all do every day, especially in managing scholarship and funding opportunities, planning events, and sending the newsletter. I can’t wait to get to know all of you, so stop by the CAPS office (4199) if you want to say hello, need any assistance, or want to see some cute pictures of my dogs. Cheers! J
