Victoria Asbury received the Society for the Study of Social Problems Racial and Ethnic Minorities Division Outstanding Graduate Student Paper Award for "Immigration Discourse, Race-based Resource Allocation, and Political Identification: An Experiment."
The role of graduate students in undergraduate education is central to the experience of Harvard College students, and fundamental to teaching in our Department. In 2008 the Graduate School announced the establishment of the Derek C. Bok Awards for Excellence in the Teaching of Undergraduates. These awards, of which there are just five Harvard-wide, are made possible by an endowment gift from Jean F. Nathan and David G. Nathan ('51, M.D. '55). Congratulations, Cresa, and thank you!!!
