At the annual faculty awards dinner on May 21st, our very own Rebecca Kissane, assistant professor of sociology, received the Carl R. and Ingeborg Beidleman Research Award recognizing excellence in applied research or scholarship. The prize was established by Carl R. Beidleman ’54, professor emeritus of finance at Lehigh University, and his wife, Ingeborg.

Prof. Kissane’s scholarship centers on the views and experiences of poor women as they navigate a post-welfare reform safety net, high-poverty neighborhoods, and low-wage employment.

Congratulations, Rebecca!
