The roster includes seven fellows of the American Academy for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), one of only a handful of academics to hold appointments to both the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering, a fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration, a Fulbright Scholar, and a National Book Award finalist, to name but a few.
