Society of Fellows

The RCC maintains strong relationships with its alumni fellows through its Society of Fellows. All former Carson fellows are corresponding members of the Society of Fellows.

The RCC Society of Fellows (formerly the Alumni Association) has been in existence since summer 2011. Alumni fellow Cindy Ott is the current president. The president is supported by an executive committe, made up of alumni fellows who represent both different disciplines and regions of the world. The executive committee includes Elin Kelsey, Siddhartha Krishnan, Claudia Leal, Daisy Onyige, and Nicole Seymour. The Society of Fellows plans events around the world for alumni fellows and is also developing resources that will help RCC fellows past and present stay connected to the center.

Mission Statement

The RCC Society of Fellows fosters global connections and collaborations within the RCC and increases the impact and visibility of the RCC, its Society of Fellows, and the environmental humanities worldwide.
