Join me in congratulating our incredibly prolific and talented faculty! In the past year, Columbian College scholars authored or edited 52 new books on topics ranging from the design aspects of the 1930s world’s fairs to the ancient Indian concept of Dharma. I’m also pleased to report that faculty earned 28 fellowships and scholarships, including five Fulbright Scholarships.
In addition, prestigious institutions such as the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, and the American Cancer Society awarded grants to 68 of our faculty researchers to help fund their research. For example, Psychology Professor Maria Zea will use her grant from the National Institutes of Health to work with the DC Developmental Center for AIDS Research; and Chair of Anthropology Brian Richmond’s grant from the Leaky Foundation will further advance his study of primates’ teeth and the origins and developments of their chewing and feeding adaptations.
We are so proud of our faculty for being at the forefront of learning and discovery.
