Each spring, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS) recognizes 20 graduating seniors who have amassed an impressive body of work during their undergraduate careers at the College. The two top students from each of the majors offered within HSS receive recognition as HSS Scholars.
There are over 170 faculty members that teach in the departments and programs that make up HSS. These teacher-scholars are active researchers and writers. They make discoveries in the field and in the laboratory, and their work garners accolades and recognition on a worldwide basis.
Just a few recent examples include:
- History professor, Rich Bodek, earns Fullbright for a trip to research in Germany
- Professors Thomas Nadelhofer (philosophy) and Jen Wright (psychology) awarded $240K for a joint research project
- The College's Distinguished Service Award presented to Joe Kelly (English)
- The College's Distinguished Research Award presented to Simon Lewis (English)
- Vince Benigini presented with the School of Humanities and Social Sciences' Faculty of the Year Award at the 2013 ExCel Awards Ceremony
