Cathy was one of ten distinguished University of Michigan alumni who received the University’s Bicentennial Alumni Award at the December 2017 Winter Commencement in Ann Arbor.  University of Michigan Provost Martin Philbert said of the awardees “Their contributions in fields including the arts, health sciences, public policy, entertainment and philanthropy exemplify the university’s commitment to educating individuals who will act as both servants to and critics of society.”  Cathy, who received her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, was recognized “for her many significant contributions to science and pedagogy.”  The culmination of two days of celebrations was the Commencement Ceremony and an address by acclaimed author, professor and MacArthur Fellow Jesmyn Ward.  Read more about the ceremony and award recipients here.
