Bouchet Graduate Honor Society Scholars

The Bouchet Society seeks to develop a network of preeminent scholars who exemplify academic and personal excellence, foster environments of support, and serve as examples of CLASSCharacter, Leadership, Advocacy, Scholarship, and Service. In the spirit of Bouchet’s commitment to these pursuits both within and without the academic realm, inductees into the honor society exhibit these qualities, and demonstrate a shared commitment to broadening the participation of doctoral students, postdocs, and faculty from backgrounds historically excluded from and underrepresented in the academy.
