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 CLASS: Character, 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 underrepresented in the academy.
