Isaac Kramnick, the Richard J. Schwartz Professor of Government, is one of Cornell University's most prominent scholars and teachers. Recipient of Cornell's Clark Distinguished Teaching Award and named a 1998 Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellow, he has been recognized for his effective and lively teaching.
"The excitement that comes in doing research and then transforming that very private work into a book for others to read is indescribable. But even more exhilarating is the joy I derive from teaching. The communication is instant and there can be no greater thrill than having students tell you that you opened up the world of ideas for them. It's what it's all about." ~ Isaac Kramnick
Professor Kramnick was vice provost for undergraduate education at Cornell and previously served the University as associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, faculty trustee, chair of the Residential Learning Committee, chair of the Government department, member of the College of Arts and Sciences admissions committee, and in many other capacities.
Professor Kramnick, the author of many books on political philosophy, has been honored with some of the most prestigious scholarly awards in his field. He is a fellow of Great Britain's Royal Historical Society and a recipient of the Woodrow Wilson Fellowship and the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship. He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in April 1997.
