Bernard Grofman, faculty in residence, receives honorary degree in Denmark
Bernard Grofman, a Fall 2010 faculty in residence at the NYU School of Law and the Jack W. Peltason (Bren Foundation) Endowed Chair in Political Science at the University of California, Irvine, received an honorary political science doctorate in November from the University of Copenhagen.
Awarded to Grofman for his scholarship in connection with voting, electoral systems, and parliamentary affairs, the degree was accompanied by a citation that characterized some of his works as “classics in the field.” Only one political science scholar had previously been honored by the University of Copenhagen. The queen and prince consort of Denmark attended the award ceremony. At the University of California, Irvine, Grofman is also an adjunct professor of economics and director of the Center for the Study of Democracy.
