"We have so enjoyed multiple endeavors with GradFUTURES, from workshops to receptions, to collaborations with graduate students as University Administrative Fellows. To be able to share university press publishing --the how, why, and who of it--with incredibly creative and curious students is a profound joy. The PUP team learns as much as we teach in these collaborations.
The mission and impact of university press publishing has inspired me through years of collaborations in this community, and with scholars the world over. After 24 years at the University of Chicago Press, the chance to join PUP, a press I have long admired and learned from, and to lead an amazing team through a time of global challenge and change, within a campus community that is so invested in meaningful impact, generates gratitude every moment of every day."
