Corrections: In the May 16 issue of Almanac, The Graduate Wharton Association's MBA Core Curriculum Awards were incorrectly identified as the Miller-Sherrerd Core Curriculum Awards. Dr. Richard Gelles of Social Work is the Joanne T. and Raymond H. Welsh Professor in Child Welfare and Family Violence. We regret the errors.
