Steven L. Lamy, director of the USC School of International Relations, will receive a distinguished alumni award June 7 from Siena College, his undergraduate alma mater in upstate New York.
Lamy, who graduated from Siena in 1973, will be given the Professor Joseph A. Buff Award for Career Achievement during the college’s Reunion Weekend.
A self-described “Wilsonian liberal” and “Europeanist,” Lamy founded USC’s Teaching International Relations Program, which trains student volunteers to introduce international relations concepts in local high schools.
He is a four-time USC Professor of the Year and one of the first winners of USC’s Teaching Has No Boundaries award.
Lamy has published more than 30 articles and chapters in his area of expertise, which includes foreign policy analysis of U.S.-European Union relations.
Siena College is a Catholic, co-educational liberal arts college located north of Albany, N.Y.
