Hear From Hawks

Janée Burkhalter, Ph.D.

Being a faculty member at SJU affords me the opportunity to work in an environment where I am able to authentically pursue my passions not only through scholarship and service, but also through teaching. I am constantly learning new concepts, discovering new pedagogical approaches and engaging with new forms of technology as I study and teach marketing, entertainment and diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).”

The spaces that are created at SJU to dive deeper into issues of social justice, structural inequality and diversity mean so much to me. I value the critical discussions with colleagues and fellow students challenging us to find ways to live out our Jesuit values.”
