Stephanie Scott, Ph.D. is an Assistant Research Professor at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. A former Peace Corps member, Scott volunteered as a social worker at the refugee camps at the U.S. naval base at Guantánamo Bay between 1994 and 1995.


The University of Miami is participating in the Guantánamo Public Memory Project‘s National Dialogue and Traveling Exhibit. Opening at NYU’s Kimmel Center for University Life Windows Gallery in December 2012 and traveling to 9 sites (and counting) across the country through at least 2014, the exhibit will explore GTMO’s history from US occupation in 1898 to today’s debates and visions for its future. The exhibit is being developed through a unique collaboration among a growing number of universities as a dialogue among their students, communities, and people with first-hand experience at GTMO.
