At a ceremony in Washington D.C., Sheldon Danziger and Becky Blank, former Ford School dean, were inducted as 2010 Fellows of the American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS). Fellows are selected not only for their contributions to the field of public policy, but their dedication to sharing research with real world policy makers and the general public.

During the ceremony, AAPSS president, Douglas S. Massey, described these recipients as having “used the power of their intellects and their cutting-edge research to address questions of great importance.” After receiving their award, each new fellow was invited to share their research and its impact on public policy. Audio and transcripts of both Danziger and Blank’s speeches are available on the AAPSS website.
