Eight Cornell doctoral candidates and two postdocs have been inducted into the Cornell chapter of the Edward Alexander Bouchet Graduate Honor Society.

The Bouchet Society recognizes outstanding scholarly achievement and promotes diversity and excellence in doctoral education and the professoriate. Its network of scholars exemplifies academic and personal excellence, character, service, and advocacy especially for those from backgrounds historically underrepresented in the academy.

Cornell’s Bouchet scholars, along with scholars from institutions around the country, were inducted at the annual Yale Bouchet Conference on Diversity and Graduate Education hosted by the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in New Haven, Connecticut on April 5 and 6. The theme of this year’s conference was “Rediscovering the Legacy of Edward A. Bouchet: A Catalyst for Historical Reckoning.” During the two-day program, six Cornell scholars gave poster and oral research presentations.
