Professor Jennifer Emswiler
Jennifer Emswiler has been the Assistant Professor of Art for USCU since fall 2018. During her time in her position she has created the USCU Art Club, co-created the USCU Botanical Garden, and Garden Club, and has served on many committees that actively serve the USCU campus. The Art Club has been active in bringing arts to the campus and is always working towards the beautification of campus. She has shown her work Propagation at the Union County Arts Council and has given artist talks, as well as served as a judge for the elementary-high school art shows.
She has devoted her time to creating artwork that creates dialogs about the complexity of mental illness. Her hope is to de-stigmatize mental illness by building a bridge of communication between those afflicted and to those that lack understanding of the illnesses.
