Helen Mulvey Faculty Award

In 2012, the College institiuted the Helen Mulvey Faculty Award, endowed by an anonymous alumna to honor the late Helen Mulvey, who retired from the College in 1983 as the Brigida Pacchiani Ardenghi Professor Emeritus of History.

The award is presented annually to a faculty member who embodies Mulvey's legendary commitment to engaging students intellectually and teaching them to love learning. It recognizes an assistant professor who regularly offers classes that challenge students to work harder than they thought they could and to reach unanticipated levels of academic achievement.

Cherise Harris, assistant professor of sociology, was the inaugural recipient of the award.

Anthony Graesch, assistant professor of anthropology, was the 2013 recipient.  

Afshan Jafar, assistant professor of sociology, is the 2014 recipient.
