The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) has announced that Vernon Smith is the recipient of the seventh CAS Award for Scholarship. Smith is professor of law and economics and recipient of the 2002 Nobel Memorial Prize for Economic Sciences. He will deliver the annual CAS scholarly lecture on Wednesday, April 23, at 7 p.m. in Harris Theatre.

The award is given to a scholar whose recent work has played a significant role in the advancement of his or her discipline. Through this honor, the college recognizes one of its outstanding scholars and promotes the value of the scholarly activities in which faculty are engaged.

Dean Daniele Struppa created the CAS Celebration of Scholarship in 1997 to recognize the talent of the faculty and to unite them in celebration of their significant achievements. As part of the celebration, the college invites participants to attend a dinner preceding the lecture at 5:30 p.m. at George’s Restaurant in the Johnson Center. Space is limited for this exciting event.
