Shawny Anderson, Director of Justice, Community and Leadership. July 9, 2015
Shawny Anderson is Associate Dean of Liberal Arts at St. Mary’s College of California. Since January 2002 (with a few breaks in between) Shawny has taken Jan Term trips that are now loosely connected under the title “DIRT.” DIRT stands for Dismantle, Immerse, Reflect, Transform. The DIRT trips have sent students into situations of extreme poverty and challenged those students to collaborate with host communities to address quality of life issues of the hosts’ choosing.
