Dr. Marcia Chatelain, professor at Georgetown University and Mizzou alum, returned to campus on Tuesday to deliver the 2022 Lloyd B. Thomas Lecture: “History, Social Change, and What We Need Now.” Dr. Chatelain’s book Franchise: The Golden Arches in Black America won the 2021 Pulitzer Prize in History.

During her visit, Dr. Chatelain met with students and faculty from across campus, including our Middleton Center Scholars. On Wednesday evening, we did an early presentation of the Faculty Alumni Award she is receiving this year for her personal accomplishments and service to higher education. She is one of 10 honorees receiving an award and is unable to attend the formal ceremony in November.

Intellectual pluralism – a commitment to respectful dialogue and viewpoint diversity – is central to Mizzou’s education, research and outreach mission. Dr. Chatelain’s visit is part of our ongoing responsibility to encourage these important conversations.

It was great welcoming Dr. Chatelain back to Columbia.
