New Science and Justice Research Center Manager

January 31, 2019


The Science and Justice Research Center (SJRC) at the University of California, Santa Cruz, is delighted to announce its new manager, Colleen Massengale!

The SJRC is a globally recognized research center that endeavors to cultivate experimental spaces, collaborative practices, and novel alliances for exploring the most pressing challenges in the field of science and justice today. As the center continues to grow, so too has its need for high-level staffing. The SJRC was thrilled to receive authorization to recruit for a managerial position in the fall quarter, and even more thrilled to welcome their new manager in early January.

Colleen Massengale brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this role in the Science and Justice Research Center. She has served as an administrative staff member in the SJRC--and the Sociology Department--since late 2012, and held numerous complex administrative positions outside academia prior to her arrival at UC Santa Cruz. With a double major in sociology and critical dance studies from UC Riverside, Colleen also brings a tremendous amount of insight, dedication, and passion to her work, and we look forward to the center growing to even greater heights under her administrative leadership.
