Hannah Douglas

Instructional Specialist Coordinator
University of Arizona
General Studies

My undergraduate studies with the General Studies department gave me the opportunity to explore my interests and career options before committing to a more comprehensive career path. After graduating, I continued to use my general studies education in a variety of fields from nonprofit, multimedia and video production, volunteer and event coordination, and medical lab administration while I more closely refined my career aspirations. I am now an Instructional Specialist Coordinator with the UA THINK TANK as well as a current Ph.D. graduate student in the Educational Psychology program. As someone deeply invested in higher education as a student and an instructor, I am engaged in ongoing research and service aimed at facilitating student success through trauma-informed approaches, specifically looking at how educators can shift methods of interacting and responding to students impacted by trauma through the influence of social support, connectedness, and positive interpersonal relationships.
