Revelle College Honorary Fellows

Revelle College honor individuals who have made exceptional and sustained contributions to Revelle College, in particular its students, in the form of education, service, and/or research. Candidates who meet these high standards will be of two types: Fellows will be Revelle Faculty or Revelle Emeritus Faculty while Honorary Fellows will be members of the UCSD community more broadly.

In addition to honoring those who have already greatly contributed to the mission of Revelle College, we hope this program will also

  • foster greater interaction between Revelle faculty and the student body (which can help overcome some of the depersonalization that can occur in large institutions)
  • encourage creative ways to further education in and outside traditional academic settings
  • help produce a stronger sense of community between all members of Revelle College
