PhD Candidate Carrie Hutnick Wins Award

Congratulations to one our students, who received the Spirit of King Faculty Award.

Carrie Hutnick, working on her PhD in public sociology, has already taken her scholarship beyond the borders of Mason’s Fairfax Campus. George Mason News reports that her dissertation project was developed and is being conducted with an incarcerated graduate student; it examines how incarcerated and university students learn from and relate to one another as they engage in a discussion-based class together inside a prison.

In recognition of her work, Mason’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Education presented Hutnick with its 2018 Spirit of King Faculty Award during the university’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr., Evening of Reflection on January 24.
