The American Academy of Arts and Letters has elected Baruch College’s Distinguished Professor of English Grace Schulman, PhD, to become a member of its Department of Literature. According to the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the honor of election is “considered the highest form of recognition of artistic merit in this country.”
The prominent honor society—founded in 1898 and comprised of the nation’s leading architects, artists, composers, and writers—will hold its ceremony on May 22 in New York City to induct the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences professor.
“Professor Schulman’s induction into the American Academy of Arts and Letters is the climax of a long and distinguished career as poet, writer, editor, and, of course, teacher,” said Aldemaro Romero Jr., PhD, Dean of the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences. “It is as proud a moment for the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences as it is for her, and it brings the highest level of national recognition that she so richly deserves for her extraordinary accomplishments.”
