WHY I TEACH is a series about the dedicated professionals at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, including professors, coaches, advisors and other staff members, who make every day a teachable moment — and every place a learning place — by their expertise and example.
In Why I Teach, Ken Brosky, an associate professor in the College of Integrated Studies on the Rock County campus, connects students with the worthiness of their own ideas through critical reading and creative writing.
In Why I Teach, Stephanie Selvick, UW-Whitewater LGBTQ coordinator and director of the PB Poorman Pride Center, teaches courses designed to help LGBTQ people experience the feelings of confidence and empowerment which come with being part of a community — perhaps for the first time. The Sturgeon Bay native joined the Warhawk family five years ago.
In WHY I TEACH, Pete Killoran, lecturer in the Department of Sociology, Criminology and Anthropology, says working with a college mentor allowed him to see his own future. Born in Syracuse, New York, Killoran was drawn to anthropology at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Now he is a mentor to undergraduates in criminology and forensic science.
