Wisconsin Alumnus Pursues Law at Case Western Reserve

Daniel Dallas, a University of Wisconsin-Madison Posse alumnus and a member of the school’s 10th Posse from Chicago, has begun classes at Case Western Reserve University Law School as an Odette Wurzburger Health Law Scholar.

During his time at Wisconsin, Daniel served as a diversity coordinator and vice president of the National Pan-Hellenic Council. He completed internships at the Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation and Rush Hospital. After graduating with a degree in life sciences communications in 2015, Daniel completed the Apple Store Leader Rotational Program, where he was responsible for a leading team of 100 individuals in a multi-million dollar retail operation.

“Posse challenged me and taught me how to be myself,” says Daniel. “Posse opened so many doors, enabling me to not only go to college, but to graduate school and on to a successful career.”

Daniel intends to focus his studies on healthcare, given his personal passions for combatting stigmas against queer people of color and providing better care and resources to marginalized communities.

“My Posse is my biggest support,” says Daniel. “I always tell Scholars to use this Posse network since we all have this shared experience.”
