Emily Ozer, UC Berkeley Professor of Community Health & Human Development, was recently chosen to receive a 2014-2015 Chancellor’s Award for Public Service in the category of Faculty Research in the Public Interest. In her comments in receiving the award, she noted that her trajectory and passion for public interest work were sparked as an undergrad at Harvard with Pforzheimer, Public Service, and Trustman Traveling Fellowships which "took me out of the classroom and into the world of community development and human rights in India and Central America." She also noted that these fellowships "really changed my life and fueled a passion for community-based research and intervention. As a student on financial aid as an undergrad, there is no way i could have afforded to take time off and have that learning."
