About Jay: Jay Stemmle started working at CLAS as a writing tutor back in 1999. She eventually moved into the area of academic skills and served as the Coordinator of CLAS’s Academic Skills Program from 2001-2011. In Fall 2011, Jay lived in Belgium on a Fulbright Scholarship, conducting archival research toward her PhD in medieval history. Jay went on to receive UCSB’s Humanities Research Mentorship Award to continue her work back in Santa Barbara, and in 2013-14, she served as a TA in the Department of History. Now Jay is back at CLAS doing what she calls, “the best job at UCSB.” Jay brings to her work a deep curiosity about the nature of learning, an unwavering respect for students of all GPAs, and her own experience of the sweetness of discovery. Her aim is to help every UCSB student find that sweetness in their classes. Along these lines, she stays continuously active inquiring into the strategies of successful students and into the most difficult academic challenges that all students face. Jay holds a Bachelor’s Degree in history from Northwestern University and a Master’s Degree in English from UCSB. She is a PhD Candidate in UCSB’s History Department. Her dissertation focuses on communities of people with leprosy in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries in a region that is today southern Belgium.
