Presented by the Presidential Task Force on Research Excellence

In partnership with the President and Academic Affairs, our office has launched a series of lectures by prominent Academy Fellows who will visit campus throughout our 50th anniversary year. They represent a variety of disciplines including Climate Studies, Advanced Materials, Life Sciences, Computation, and more.

Becoming a member of a national or international academy solidifies a faculty member’s scholarly and research accomplishments, celebrating not only the scholar’s accomplishments but also the institution in being recognized as a premier academic and research university.
