Each year, the University of Utah recognizes the achievements of exceptional faculty members in teaching, research, mentorship and service. Congratulations to Calvary’s very own Dr. William A. Smith!
Professor William A. Smith’s research primarily focuses on Racial Battle Fatigue—a repetitive race-related stress injury—which is the cumulative emotional, psychological, physiological, and behavioral effects that racial micro-level aggressions and macro-level aggressions have on People of Color. Dr. Smith’s work promotes awareness of the physical and mental toll of racism while providing trauma-informed care for those who are targets of gendered racism.
