Congrats to the new Faculty in Residences (FiRs)

Please join us in welcoming our two new Faculty in Residences (FiRs): María del Pilar Melgarejom for Cockrell-McIntosh Commons and Justin Germain for Loyd Commons.

Our FiR families at SMU reside in one of our Residential Commons and partner with students and staff to enhance the Commons community experience.

Dr. Melgarejo and her husband, Dr. Ruben Sanchez–Godoy, teach Latin American literature and culture as well as Spanish in the Department of World Languages and Literatures. In addition, their son Antonio and daughter Violeta will be making Cockrell-McIntosh their new home.

Professor Germain earned his doctorate from The University of Indiana in classical studies and came to SMU in the fall of 2016, where he has shared his passion for the classics ever since. Justin will be joined in Loyd Commons by his daughter Elora and his Terrier-Mix Diana.
