Dr. Loretta Kensinger is one of the university’s most enthusiastic teachers. A dedicated mentor of Women’s Studies majors and others interested in feminist research and activism, Dr. Kensinger has been a member of the faculty since 1998. She views higher education as vital to sustaining a liberating, just and democratic community open and enriched by the contributions of all its diverse members. She crafts her expertise in political science and feminist political theory into challenging courses that explore the impact of gender on both the individual and the larger social world. As an educator, she finds the greatest mark of achievement is to be part of helping students attain their highest goals, such as when the Dean’s Medalist for the College of Social Sciences won a fellowship to pursue her doctorate in political science and women’s studies.
With Dr. Kensinger is Michelle Colvin, Vianey Nuñez, senior Women’s Studies majors, and Morghan Young, a senior Anthropology major.
