Haire named Frank J. Goodnow Award recipient

Susan Brodie Haire, a professor in the School of Public and International Affairs’ political science department, has been selected to receive the Frank J. Goodnow Award from the American Political Science Association.

The award was established in 1996 to honor the outstanding contributions of individuals, groups, and public and private organizations to both the development of the political science profession and the building of the American Political Science Association. The Goodnow Award is named for Frank J. Goodnow, the association’s first president.

The citation for the award read in part: “Professor Haire’s longstanding commitment to service in the profession, impressive for both its breadth and depth, stood out to the awards committee. Her record of service demonstrates a career-long dedication to improving the profession through mentorship, teaching, and service.”

Haire’s research has focused on the U.S. Courts of Appeals, inter-court relations and the impact of racial and gender diversity of judges on judicial decision-making.
