This May, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences plans to host three convocations - one each for its graduate students, undergraduate humanities and interdisciplinary programs students, and undergraduate social sciences students.
Mr. Brown received a Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies from George Mason University earlier this year, writing his thesis on the topic of increasing public education access and quality at reduced cost.
Faculty member Debra Lattanzi Shutika has been recognized by the American Folklore Society and the University of Chicago with the Chicago Folklore Prize, given each year to the author of the best book-length work of folklore scholarship.
Gil Brown, a May 2012 graduate of the MAIS in Higher Education Administration program, contributed a chapter on financial aid to the AACRAO book "Strategic Enrollment Management: Transforming Higher Education."
Gil is Assistant Vice President and Chief Budget Officer for the Office of Budget and Planning at Mason.
A record number of students from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at George Mason University walked across the stage in grand fashion during their convocations on May 17 and 18, 2012. More than 2,500 graduating students were recognized for their efforts in two distinguished ceremonies.
