The Bouchet Graduate Honor Society, established in 2005 by Yale University and Howard University to recognize outstanding scholarly achievement, recently inducted four doctoral candidates from Washington University in St. Louis.

Named after the first African American doctoral recipient in the United States, the honor society recognizes outstanding scholarly achievement and promotes diversity and excellence in doctoral education and the professoriate. Its network of preeminent scholars exemplifies academic and personal excellence, character, service and advocacy for students who have been traditionally underrepresented in the academy.

The 2023 Washington University Bouchet inductees are:

  • David Balmaceda, in applied linguistics;
  • Rosie Dutt, in imaging science;
  • Dominique A. Horton, in social work; and
  • Maurice Tetne, in French language and literature.
