Susan Welch, professor and dean of the Penn State College of the Liberal Arts, received the 2019 Lion’s Paw Medal during the society’s 2019 Convocation Ceremony, which took place over Blue-White Weekend. Lion’s Paw is an honor society that seeks to promote the welfare and perpetuate the traditions of Penn State. Since 1965, the society has awarded its Lion’s Paw Medal annually to recognize individuals who have gone above and beyond in terms of their service to Penn State.

Welch has served as dean of the College of the Liberal Arts since 1991, making her one of the longest-serving deans in University history. Welch is a noted scholar on American politics — particularly urban, ethnic and women’s politics — and is recognized as one of the most cited political scientists of her generation. She is returning to the faculty on July 1 to continue her current research on women as congressional candidates and on the political science of the Holocaust.
