Eight Cornell doctoral candidates and two postdocs have been selected for induction into the Cornell chapter of the Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society.
The Bouchet Society recognizes outstanding scholarly achievement and promotes diversity and excellence in doctoral education and the professoriate. Its network of scholars exemplifies academic and personal excellence, character, service and advocacy for those from backgrounds historically underrepresented in the academy.
The scholars were inducted at the annual Yale Bouchet Conference on Diversity and Graduate education hosted at the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences campus in New Haven, Connecticut on March 31 and April 1. During the two-day program, eight of the scholars gave poster and oral presentations. Scholars and their invited mentors and loved ones were honored at the Cornell Bouchet Scholar Recognition and Celebration on April 6 at Cornell.
