Meet the Prof: Druscilla Scribner
The following faculty Q&A was submitted by the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Faculty Advocacy Committee, a committee of the Faculty Senate. Tracy Slagter, assistant professor of political science, wrote the introduction.
I am very lucky to count Dru Scribner as my colleague and my dear friend. She joined the faculty one year before I did, and in many respects she has served as an inspiration for both my teaching and my research.
Dru is a dedicated teacher, always challenging her students with innovative assignments and contriving new ways to assess their learning. Her research has recently earned her a three-year National Science Foundation grant to study constitutions and gender in Africa and Latin America, and this is only one example of a research agenda full of investigations into judicial and women’s politics. She and I collaborated on a study abroad adventure to Germany, and our students and I will forever remember what we learned from and the good times that we had with Dru.
