Waukesha Police Specialist ’12 Alumna Sonia (Sunny) Schneider said her undergraduate experience taught her strategies of listening, bracketing her biases, and responding with empathy. These interpersonal skills are tools she relies on when she engages with community members in her law enforcement career. Schneider said she found something greater than herself in her time at UWSP, graduating in 2012. “I think liberal arts programs produce people who can do that ‘big picture’ thinking,” Schneider said.
