Sagan called ‘rock star’ of nonproliferation education
SCOTT SAGAN, the Caroline S.G. Munro Professor of Political Science and co-director of the Center for International Security and Cooperation, has officially been labeled a “rock star.”
Sagan was recently recognized by the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies in Monterey with an award for outstanding contributions to nonproliferation education.
In presenting the award, Gaukhar Mukhatzhanova said this: “With almost 25 years of teaching experience, having taught 16 different courses and chaired eight PhD dissertation committees (that’s not to mention his head-spinning list of publications), he is truly one of the rock stars of our field. And you can tell that he is a teacher when at a busy conference full of big shots, you’ll find him talking to younger people, discussing their papers, their research interests and their plans.”
