BS’06 Rural Sociology
Organizing a women’s leadership camp, establishing a library for students and planning a science curriculum workshop for local teachers and principals were some of the activities Marian Weidner engaged in during her Peace Corps service. Weidner was inspired to join the Peace Corps after taking courses from Jack Kloppenburg, now an emeritus professor of community and environmental sociology, who had served as a volunteer himself. Her Peace Corps experiences continue to shape her career. She works in San Francisco for an open-access publisher of science and medicine articles, reflecting her interest in increasing public access to knowledge and information.
