Paul Morgan, Ph.D.
morgan-paul.jpg

We are so proud of the work Dr. Morgan is doing as the Director of the University of Utah Veterans Support Center!

Currently, Dr. Morgan is leading the Strategy working group for the Veterans Higher Education Collaborative.  The Collaborative is a working group comprised of the Department of Defense and 28 select postsecondary institutions that are working together to improve student veterans' transition to and through higher education. The Collaborative will be sharing research, knowledge, and best practices related to supporting military-connect students in higher education. As the Strategy lead, Dr. Morgan is shaping the specific goals of the Collaborative and the approach to achieving those goals.

On April 5, he was a panelist at the Utah System of Higher Education conference on “Destigmatizing the Adult Learner as the new Post-Traditional Student” in Provo, UT.  The panel was titled “Helping Adult Learners in Transition.”

Working with the university’s Union, the Veterans Support Center was able to raise and award $20,000 in scholarships to student veterans for fall 2019, which is more scholarship money that the center has awarded since its establishment in 2011.

Dr. Morgan is even branching out into the performing arts! On February 2, Dr. Morgan participated in a chorus as part of Utah “Wild Up: We the People,” which is an experimental classical ensemble whose projects are meant to bring people together.  The group works with students and community members to create an original performance involving songs about change and activism. Dr. Morgan accepted the invitation to perform to counter existing veteran stereotypes. Dr. Morgan commented, "Their approach to music is unusual and my talent is marginal but the results were remarkable." We are positive you rocked the performance just as hard as your dissertation, Dr. Morgan, and we wish we could have been there to witness your stage debut!

Sam Nickels, Ph.D.
Sam Nickels, Ph.D.

In addition to his full-time work as Executive Director of Our Community Place in Harrisonburg, Dr. Sam Nickels has been consulting for the last two years on asylum cases of persons with mental illness who the U.S. government is trying to deport to their country of origin, El Salvador. SSLS Admissions Coordinator and First Year Advisor Brooke Rhodes asked Sam a few questions to learn more about his consulting work.

Brooke: Sam, what is your consulting work about?

Sam: I provide a written declaration or affidavit regarding the likely affect on someone with mental illness if they are deported to El Salvador. For example, if a man with psychosis is being held in detention by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, and the person is incompetent, the government must provide a lawyer to help them through the removal proceedings. Lawyers often enter pleas for asylum based on asylum law or convention against torture law to prevent the person from being deported. Basically I testify in these legal cases as a "country conditions expert."

 

Brooke: What is your roll in these cases?

Sam: If someone with a severe mental illness were deported to El Salvador, for a variety of reasons they might not be able to see a psychiatrist, or obtain a stable supply of medications, or because they are vulnerable they might be used by gangs to carry out criminal activity, or they might have interactions with police or gang members that lead to verbal and physical abuse, and sometime be killed. The estimates of likelihood are based on my research over the years with colleagues in El Salvador, interviews with many people with mental illness and their caregivers, my tours of the psychiatric hospital there, and reading I do. The saddest cases are those of people who are very incompetent due to intellectual or psychosocial disability, who are doing well in the U.S., all their family is in the U.S. now including their mother and siblings who care for them, they have not been back to El Salvador since they were a child 20 or 30 years ago, they have no family left there to care for them, and yet our government is trying to deport them. It is unethical, inappropriate, unjust, and completely insensitive. However, we have to prove this to the immigration judge in ways that meet specific criteria of asylum or torture laws.

 

Brooke: How did this all start for you?

Sam: After I completed my PhD at SSLS, and published my dissertation on a mental health program in El Salvador, I also published some of the additional data in a World Health Organization peer reviewed journal. That began to catch the eye of lawyers around the country who were looking for someone with knowledge of the mental health conditions in El Salvador, who had credentials (like a PhD), who spoke and wrote English, and who was willing to testify in these cases. It appears there are very few of us in the world who meet those criteria. I've now done 35 cases from LA and San Diego to Seattle, Florence AZ, Denver, Atlanta, New York, Arlington and Washington DC, and Chicago. I don't travel, it's all by email, although I testify by phone with the lawyers and an immigration judge. Those testimonies sometimes go on for 1 to 2 hours, with the government lawyer grilling me for any holes he or she can find. Sometimes it gets brutal.

 

Brooke: Why do you do it?

Sam: Once after a case was over, the lawyer wrote me to say her client won the case, he was approved for asylum, and he walked out free after being in an ICE jail for a year. She also said "You saved a life." I think it's true. If these folks were returned to El Salvador, many of them would flounder, become homeless, become victims of gangs, suffer incredible discrimination and abuse. Some would be killed, others would die an early death due to psychiatric and health deterioration and the abuses they suffer. I would not have been able to do this work without the SSLS program training and degree. In a sense, you all have been helping to save lives too.

Hey SSLS Alumni!

Do you have an interesting research or consulting project that you would like to share with SSLS to be featured in our next newsletter? Perhaps you would like to talk about how SSLS has contributed to your success in your current role or you would like to give some advice to our current SSLS students that you wish you would have known during your Ph.D. If you would like to be interviewed for our fall 2019 newsletter, let Brooke know!
