Under her stewardship, Northwestern has explored global health, Chicago, bioethics, climate change, women's rights, the history of First Nations people in North America, democracy, racial stereotyping, predictions, the death penalty, hunger, and more. With these compelling works Northwestern readers are challenged to look deeper into all sides of an issue.

Through her energy and expanded connections, One Book has become One Community.
