Professor Amy Wildermuth, in addition to her superb teaching and research in the areas of environmental and administrative law, now serves the University as Associate Vice President for Faculty. Professor Erika George teaches and writes in the area of international human rights; she has become known nationally and internationally for her human rights scholarship and service, and in the spring of 2013 won the Humanitarian Award of the Utah Inclusion Center for Community and Justice.”
