Amy L. Sloane

311 Red Gym

Amy Sloane holds a joint PhD in Curriculum & Instruction and Forestry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She also holds a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology and Sustainable Development from UW-Madison. A Madison resident since 1994, she continues to zealously claim her east-coast roots (New Jersey). Her academic interests include history and philosophy of environmental thought, bioethics, educational reform and change, and social inclusion and exclusion in higher education. She has worked on campus with the Academic Advancement Program, the Institute for Environmental Studies, and the McNair Scholars Program. She loves to read poetry. Over the last 10 years, she has learned to admire the more subtle landscapes of Wisconsin – compared to her beloved Adirondack Mountains and Atlantic Ocean – by doing lots of bike riding, camping, canoeing, and other outdoor activities.

Hannah E. Bailey

Assistant Director
313 Red Gym

Hannah Bailey is a proud University of Wisconsin-Madison alumna and was awarded her Bachelor of Arts in History and French with a certificate in Gender and Women’s Studies from UW-Madison in 2010. She taught English in two low-income schools in Marseille, France, before heading to the College of William and Mary in Virginia to pursue her Master’s and PhD in History. Hannah hopes to defend her dissertation in the very near future. She spends a lot of time thinking about how groups of people distinguish themselves from others, especially during the height of the transatlantic slave trade, and what implications those colonial identities have for the world we live in today. Hannah is thrilled to be back in Madison where she can help pair motivated students with fascinating research opportunities, walk to work, read books, and find a willing debate partner for just about any topic.
