JENNIFER MCCRICKERD was born and raised in Southern California, but after more than 15 years at Drake University now considers herself to be an Iowan. She disappointed her parentsí dreams of her becoming both a physician and the winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics by majoring in philosophy at Wellesley College and continuing to get a Ph.D. in philosophy at Washington University. She works with students in a Philosophy and Religion Department discussing ethics, education, justice, how cool the brain is, and that evolution is really about survival of the fit enough, not the fittest. Her current research interests focus on intersections of ethics and education and also on topics related to faculty development and leadership
