Fred Pampel has won the 2003 Boulder Faculty Assembly Research Award, the first time this award has ever been won by a sociologist. Pampel has produced high quality work steadily throughout his career. In terms of the number of publications in top journals, he ranks in the top five among sociologists nationally.

The Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) has recognized Richard Jessor as an "ISI Highly Cited Researcher" in the category of Social Sciences: General. "These individuals are the most highly cited within each category for the period 1981-1999, and comprise less than one-half of one percent of all publishing researchers - truly an extraordinary accomplishment" (ISIHighlyCited.com).
The ISIHighlyCited.com list will ultimately include the top 250 preeminent individual researchers in each of 21 subject categories who have demonstrated great influence in their field as measured by citations to their work. The subject categories range across the life sciences, medicine, physical sciences, engineering and social sciences. Thus far, 19 Boulder campus faculty, in nine different subject categories, have been identified as "ISI Highly Cited Researchers."  Jessor and a former faculty member in the School of Law are the only two scholars at the University of Colorado recognized in the Social Sciences: General category.

Congratulations to Del Elliott who is the winner of the 2003 "August Vollmer Award." This award recognizes a criminologist whose research scholarship has contributed to justice or to the treatment or prevention of criminal or delinquent behavior. The award will be presented at the meetings of the American Society of Criminology in Denver in November.
