Marie E. Palladini  '84 from Federal Law Enforcement to Associate Professor of Public Administration

For 30 years, Marie Palladini was a federal law enforcement officer with the U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife Service, working undercover to catch smugglers of endangered species and investigating all kinds of criminal cases involving wildlife, both in the field and as a manager. It was her dream job and she could have easily retired content with having led a successful career. Instead, she found herself starting a whole new career, one she said she equally loves—as associate professor of public administration, and currently acting associate dean of the College of Business Administration and Public Policy at California State University, Dominguez Hills.  Click here to read the entire article.

Residences Earn Accolades

Southwestern's Residences at 7th Earn Accolades from Residents and Recognition for Design and Sustainability

By the conclusion of the first academic year of use, it was clear that The Residences at 7th, Southwestern's new on-campus student residential complex, had fulfilled the goal of transforming the campus into a real living-learning village. Since The Residences opened in August, the students who have made their homes there, as well as other members of the Southwestern community, have enjoyed the spacious and inviting facilities that enhance the campus experience on both a practical and aesthetic level.

 In addition to the accolades from residents and visitors, the project has been recognized for distinction in sustainability and architectural design. At the 2014 Los Angeles Architectural Awards hosted by the Los Angeles Business Council in June, Southwestern received the L.A. County Sustainability Award in recognition of The Residences' design excellence and community impact. Back in December 2013, the complex earned LEED certification at the Platinum Level from the U.S. Green Building Council.
