Thomas Burnett Inducted into Bouchet Society
Thomas Burnett, a Ph.D. candidate in neuroscience, is one of five Johns Hopkins University Ph.D. students inducted this year into the Bouchet Society, which celebrates students who exemplify academic and personal excellence. The honor allows them to connect with a network of scholars. Burnett's experience with the Teaching Academy program in the Center for Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning has allowed him to learn and employ equitable and culturally responsive teaching practices in his work. Outside of the classroom, he volunteers and advocates for greater access to science education; his volunteer efforts have been recognized by the Martin Luther King Jr. Award for Community Service. Thomas aspires to be a leader in academics and research to make science and education a more equitable endeavor.
