Amada Sandoval Director

I joined the Women’s Center as director in 2001, after a few years as a graduate student here at Princeton in the English Department. In my capacity as director I get to learn from undergraduates, graduate students, other scholars, and staff; and occasionally teach undergraduates. In addition to my work at the Center I am a Faculty Fellow for the Women’s Track and Field Team, an Academic Adviser for Wilson College, and a founding sponsor of the Princeton Women’s Mentorship Program (PWMP). I grew up in Colorado and Missouri, and have been on the East Coast since college. Outside of work I enjoy cooking, practicing yoga, attending PU sports events, and talking about film and contemporary fiction. My doctoral work is on film noir, and hard-boiled detective fiction from the early 1940s.

Jordan Dixon Program Coordinator

I joined the Women*s Center staff at the beginning of January 2016. Though I grew up in New Jersey, I have lived all over the country in the past ten years. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from the University of Vermont, and a Master’s degree in Student Affairs and Higher Education with a Women’s Studies Certificate from Colorado State University. After graduate school, I worked as a Residence Hall Director at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, and then as an Academic Advisor at the Boston Architectural College. In the past year, I’ve been a stay-at-home parent to my daughter Jesse, and moved to Lawrenceville with my family. I am thrilled to finally be back home and be a part of the Women*s Center at Princeton University!
