Student honors:

- Two Purdue University students have been selected for a multiuniversity, collaborative think tank that taps campus and community expertise on a complex societal topic. This year's students will address epidemic preparedness across America. Priyanka Brunese, a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Technology Leadership and Innovation, and Jing (Joy) Ma, a Ph.D. student in the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, were selected for the second class of Emerging Leaders in Science and Society. The leadership development program, hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, includes 15 students from Purdue, Stanford University, University of Washington, and University of Pennsylvania. The ELISS program at Purdue is supported in part by the Office of the Provost with administrative support from the Office of Interdisciplinary Graduate Programs. It is also supported by grants from the Argosy Foundation and Rita Allen Foundation, among others. Fellows learn to collaborate across disciplines and sectors on societal challenges. Fellows are chosen through a competitive application process. Last year's ELISS classes tackled nutrition policy, mental health stigma, and sustainability in public spaces.
