Accordingly, she will be invited to travel to Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut with the fellow members of the 2016 class of inductees from around the country for the official Induction Ceremony and related activities in April 2017. By virtue of this honor she will become part of a national network of scholars that are setting the pace for the central roles of diversity, excellence, and innovation in graduate education.
