Support for Chancellor's Fellow Translates into Opportunities for Students 

Amber Boydston, associate professor of political science and UC Davis Chancellor’s Fellow, talks about her research on political rhetoric and messaging can be powerful enough to change the way we think about the world.  Her expertise is on the “intersection between politics and the media.” As a Chancellor’s Fellow, Boydston uses the majority of the $25,000 fellowship to support undergraduate and graduate student researchers on her team.

Longtime UC Davis professor and administrator Winston Ko and his wife Katy Ko have endowed a faculty chair in science leadership in the College of Letters and Science. The Winston Ko Professorship in Science Leadership will recognize national or international science leadership by an outstanding faculty member in the departments of chemistry, earth and planetary sciences, mathematics, physics or statistics.

“It’s a great honor to recognize and encourage science leadership by my colleagues, which both advances science and brings prominence to UC Davis and world-class education to its students,” Ko said. Read more about how the Kos turned their vision into reality.
