UCI faculty members received three of the Russell Sage Foundation’s 19 visiting scholar appointments for the 2016-17 academic year. Greg Duncan, Distinguished Professor of education; Cynthia Feliciano, associate professor of sociology and Chicano/Latino studies; and Rubén G. Rumbaut, Distinguished Professor of sociology, will pursue research and writing projects that reflect the foundation’s commitment to strengthening the social sciences and conducting research “for the improvement of social and living conditions in the United States.” The visiting scholars program, now in its 30th year, recruits top social scientists from across the nation.
