  • Winter 2017 PhD Graduates were honored with the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) Academic Achievement Medal presented by Dean Mark Ginsberg at the PhD Colloquium on Friday, December 8.  The medal is a symbol of the scholarly achievement and overall commitment to the advancement of the field of education demonstrated by the successful completion of the PhD in Education at George Mason University. It is intended to be worn proudly at graduation. The medal also serves as a lifelong reminder to graduates of the high expectations and unwavering standards of the Mason community. The presentation of the medal to PhD Graduates is a fairly new tradition for CEHD that was first introduced at the spring 2017 School of Education Degree Celebration.

    Congratulations to the Winter 2017 PhD Academic Achievement Medalists:
