Walter Massey

Nominated by: Cheryl Jessogne

A theoretical physicist, Walter E. Massey is a leading advocate for a strong national science education system. His work in this area is guided by two overarching principles: 1) science and technology are necessary to sustain the nation’s quality of life; and, 2) the public’s understanding of science and technology is a critical component of a democratic society. In parallel with these objectives, he has helped enhance the representation of women and minorities in science and technology; articulate the benefits and goals of a broad, liberal arts education; and improve student access to the arts and design at all levels for the role they play in fostering student creativity and achievement.
