A NOBEL CELEBRATION: Gary Yohe, the Woodhouse/Sysco Professor of Economics, was honored by President Michael Roth during a reception in the President's House Nov. 28 for being a co-recipient of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.

Yohe is a senior member and coordinating lead author on the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The panel is supported by the United Nations. The The Norwegian Nobel Committee cited the IPCC for its "efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change."
Several Wesleyan faculty and staff members attended the reception to congratulate Yohe on his achievement. Former Wesleyan President Doug Bennet, left, and Stephen Angle, chair of the Philosophy Department and associate professor of philosophy, East Asian Studies, were among the guests.
