American Academy of Arts & Sciences

Yesterday, the American Academy of Arts & Sciences announced their 228 newly elected members. According to the press release, “Founded in 1780, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences is one of the country’s oldest learned societies and independent policy research centers, convening leaders from the academic, business, and government sectors to respond to the challenges facing—and opportunities available to—the nation and the world. Members contribute to Academy publications and studies in science, engineering, and technology policy; global security and international affairs; the humanities, arts, and education; and American institutions and the public good” (www.amacad.org). This prestigious group includes accomplished artists, writers, scientists and many others working toward a better tomorrow by engaging with the nation and the world.

Among the 228 new members, our very own Mark Trahant is now apart of this distinguished group. Don Randel, Chair of the Academy’s Board of Directors, said, “Their talents and expertise will enrich the life of the Academy and strengthen our capacity to spread knowledge and understanding in service to the nation” (www.amacad.org). We are excited to see Mark join the Academy, and know he will continue to enhance the research in academia.

Congratulations, Mark!
