Professor Receives Prestigious Harvard Fellowship

Message

Jericho Brown has carried more than a full load in his short time on campus. In late 2008, the USD assistant professor released his first book of poetry, Please. He organized the Cropper Writers Series that welcomed nationally known poets to campus. He's performed in a number of poetry events throughout San Diego. And he's done all this while teaching courses in poetry and creative writing at USD, as well as a graduate poetry workshop at San Diego State University.

As if that weren't enough to keep his plate overflowing, Brown was recently named a Bunting Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University. As a fellow, Brown will join an esteemed group of more than 1,400 scholars, scientists, artists, writers and musicians. Historically, the Radcliffe Institute was intended as a place for female scholars and artists to do post-graduate work, but today, Radcliffe Institute Fellowships are designed to support men and women scholars, scientists, artists and writers of exceptional promise and demonstrated accomplishments. Fellows are given financial support as well as a time free of teaching and access to all Radcliffe and Harvard resources. (Full Story on Inside USD)
