Jaime Lynn Rice

Jaime Lynn Rice

Academic Program Manager 509-335-5318 Daggy Hall 301 PO Box 642220  

As academic program manager, Jaime provides leadership and coordination for academic program activities including admissions, recruitment, and advising. She also serves as the academic coordinator for the Master of Architecture and the Master of Arts in Interior Design programs, and as advisor for undergraduate transfer students and graduate students.

Jaime is simultaneously pursuing her PhD in Education, with an emphasis in Cultural Studies and Social Thought. A descendant of the Yakama Nation and Nisqually tribes in Washington State, Jaime’s research interests examine the historical and cultural perspective of memorials, monuments, and memory through an indigenous feminist lens. More specifically, Jaime concentrates on how monuments and memorials that exist (or the lack of those that exist) symbolize discrimination and portray incomplete or inaccurate narratives, inexorably tied to racial, cultural, and economic inequity that has shaped—and continues to shape—our built environment and its collective memory. Jaime strives to create learning opportunities for students to embrace their capacity and responsibility to address racism and social justice in the built environment within their diverse fields of specialization.

Jaime threw javelin for the Track & Field team (’94 -’96) and has worked full-time for WSU since 1998. She was awarded VCEA Employee of the Year in 2018 and has also been honored with VCEA Staff Excellence in 2014, and WSU Spokane Administrative Professional Employee Excellence in 2010.
