Professor Betsy Levy Paluck has been awarded a 2017 MacArthur Fellowship, which celebrates and inspires the creative potential of individuals through no-strings-attached fellowships.
The MacArthur Fellows Program provides unrestricted fellowships to talented individuals who have shown extraordinary originality and dedication in their creative pursuits and a marked capacity for self-direction.
Paluck's research on social norms and networks is providing new insights into strategies for reducing patterns of discrimination, bullying and ethnic conflict in contexts ranging from American high schools to post-conflict Rwanda.
