October 12, 2017

Richard Moore, emeritus professor in the School of Environment and Natural Resources, adjunct emeritus professor in the Department of Anthropology, and affiliated faculty of the East Asian Studies Center, will receive the Public Policy Award from the American Anthropological Association in November.

According to a letter from AAA president Alisse Waterston, the Public Policy committee was particularly impressed with Moore's cross-disciplinary research, his outreach to high school and college students through a new curriculum, and his influence on water quality programs and overall environmental policy. "Indeed, the committee felt that your work on these issues truly represents the sort of policy contributions that deserves recognition through this award," she wrote.
