"Professor Kulcsar has demonstrated excellence in managing a combined multidisciplinary social science department with about 30 members, and colleagues have cited his terrific ability to mentor and support faculty and staff," said Rick Roush, dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences. "He is widely recognized for his work in demography and development sociology, with significant interdisciplinary research experience in environmental social science."

After earning two master's degrees in Hungary, Kulcsar received his doctorate from Cornell University. His research examines how environmental change--water shortages, for example--affects and is affected by uneven national development and spatial inequality, and he has extensive experience conducting collaborative research with natural scientists.
