Student Spotlight: Robin Zheng

It’s a good thing Robin likes to travel. Her graduate studies have taken her to conferences around the globe – from Germany to South Africa to Australia to Mexico. Out of one conference on “Diversity in Philosophy” at the University of Dayton, sponsored by the American Philosophical Association and its inclusion committees, a contingent of Michigan faculty and graduate students were motivated to take more concrete actions and create a public forum for dialogue around diversity. The discussion resulted in the founding of a Minorities and Philosophy chapter at U-M.

Student Spotlight: Sarah Suhadolnik

U-M grad students are dedicated, and Sarah Suhadolnikis no exception - on many levels. She has a two-word answer for what she does for fun: Michigan sports. “My advisor teases me about my sports addiction. We’ll be at a conference and he’ll find me in a corner checking scores on my phone.”

Student Spotlight: Hector Garcia

Hector’s downtime is active. He spends much of his time playing with his three boys, a 7 year-old and 4 year-old twins. His interest in reading non-fiction has slowly morphed into a love of comic books shared with his sons. While his boys are growing up in lovely Ann Arbor, Hector recalls a growing up in a beach town next to the El Yunque rainforest in Puerto Rico, the only rainforest in the U.S. “I spent my childhood surfing,” he says.
