June 19, 2018 — The Ethnic Studies Department congratulates our colleague, Ernesto Martínez, for winning a prestigious 2018 Faculty Excellence Award! Each year, fellow faculty, the deans, and the provost select a small group of faculty members to recognize for their “world-class research and teaching.” Awardees win $20,000 salary supplement or $26,100 for research support.
