President's Annual Report
In addition to their teaching excellence, the scholarship and professional achievements of our faculty reflect the intellectual vitality of CMC, and the College's continued impact on public policy issues. This year, a number of our faculty were recognized for their outstanding contributions to their respective fields, including:
- Edward Haley, the W.M. Keck Foundation Professor of International Strategic Studies, was appointed a Public Policy Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars in Washington, D.C.
