Stuart J. Hysom
Dr. Stuart J. Hysom was an Assistant Professor in the Sociology Department at Texas A&M University. He earned his doctorate in Sociology from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia in 2003. He began as an Assistant Professor at Texas A&M University in 2004, and remained there until his death. His research areas included social psychology, small group processes, and experimental methods. Dr. Hysom was especially interested in how status, rewards, and legitimacy processes affected human interaction, and how larger social structures influenced those processes. To honor his memory, his family and friends are establishing the Stuart J. Hysom Diversity Scholarship. The scholarship will help fund a graduate student whose research/teaching interests center on issues related to diversity, inequality or social justice.
