Emerging Scholars: Class of 2017
Each year, it is an extremely tough task for our editorial team to select only 12 scholars — this year was no exception. Therefore, it is our honor to kickoff 2017 by presenting these brilliant young minds to our readers. Of this year’s class of Emerging Scholars, each person is, in their own way, working to improve the lot of humanity. I have no doubt that you will find their personal stories informative as well as inspirational.
Our past Emerging Scholars include more than one college president, several deans at leading institutions of higher learning and an array of prolific researchers and thinkers.
