We are pleased to share that three of our graduate students were selected as members of the Bouchet Graduate Honor Society members for 2011. We congratulate Tenai Eguen, Samuel Lasse, and Christine Shulse on this achievement.
The Bouchet Graduate Honor Society was founded in 2005 by Yale and Howard universities to recognize outstanding scholarly achievement and promote diversity and excellence in doctoral education and the professoriate. It is named after Edward A. Bouchet, the first African American to obtain a PhD from an American university. UC San Diego became a member chapter of the society in 2008. The students selected exemplify the characteristics of Bouchet – scholarship, leadership, character, service and advocacy.
In February the current members organized an exhibit on Edward A. Bouchet, that was displayed in the SSH Library for the entire month.The new members are invited to the Yale Bouchet Diversity conference at Yale at the end of March.
Below is the full list of new members:
Please join us in offering our warm congratulations.[an error occurred while processing this directive]
