Spotlight on Jennifer Goodnough

Professor Jennifer Goodnough and her son, a blonde-haired boy roughly age 10, pose at a Gopher sports game. In the background are the football field and stands which spell out "Minnesota".Whether tweaking her assignments to be more accommodating to student wellbeing and mental health needs, or threatening to tell inattentive students who dies next in Game of Thrones, Professor Jennifer Goodnough is passionate about motivating, mentoring, and improving outcomes for students.
