Professor Saadia Pekkanen was recently interviewed for the Whole U’s “Faculty Friday” column.
“After twenty or thirty years, something you are interested in, you find that others may become interested in it as well. I always tell my own graduate students to never, ever go for something that others think is important. Don’t try to do something just to fit in. Do something you really care about. I’m glad I did.”
For and by the UW, The Whole U launched in January 2014 to foster community, promote holistic wellness, and share the great perks available to UW faculty and staff.
