2018 Bouchet Society Inductees and Conference Presenters

The University of Miami is a chapter institution of the Bouchet Graduate Honor Society, which was named for Edward Alexander Bouchet, the first African American doctoral recipient in the United States.  

The Bouchet Graduate Honor Society recognizes outstanding scholarly achievement and promotes diversity and excellence in doctoral education and the professoriate.

Membership into the Bouchet Honor Graduate Society is by nomination only and requires approval by the National Steering Committee. Doctoral Student Membership is available to any individual who is currently a doctoral student in good academic standing, and through initial research achievement in a humanities, social sciences and sciences field, has shown outstanding promise as a scholar, as evidenced by independent investigation or current work on a dissertation project.

Each year, Yale University hosts the “Annual Yale Bouchet Conference on Diversity and Graduate Education”. Click here for information.  University of Miami graduate students may attend the conference and present their research, and a group of nominated students are inducted into the Bouchet Graduate Honor Society.
