Chawne Kimber

Chawne Kimber, professor and department head of mathematics, is featured in The Washington Post for her patchwork quilts, which express messages about social injustice, racism, and censorship.

Kimber’s quilts have been exhibited in shows across the United States, creating a “greater dialogue about race, identity, gender, and the human experience.”

At Lafayette, Kimber co-directs the Hanson Center for Inclusive STEM Education, where she spearheads programming that advances opportunities for students of all backgrounds in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
