Congratulations to CPERL graduate student Katherine Quinn, who was named a 2018 Cornell Graduate School Bouchet Scholar!
"Named for the first African American doctoral recipient in the United States ([Edward A. Bouchet] Ph.D. from Yale University in 1876),The Bouchet Society recognizes outstanding scholarly achievement and promotes diversity and excellence in doctoral education and the professoriate. ... The Bouchet Society seeks to develop a network of preeminent scholars who exemplify academic and personal excellence, foster environments of support and serve as examples of CLASS: Character, Leadership, Advocacy, Scholarship, and Service. In the spirit of Bouchet’s commitment to these pursuits both within and without the academic realm, inductees into the honor society exhibit these qualities, and demonstrate a shared commitment to broadening the participation of doctoral students, postdocs, and faculty from backgrounds historically underrepresented in the academy."
