If two heads are better than one, then it stands to reason that 3 heads are better than 2– or, at least, the 3 heads getting Barrick Scholar Awards this year. The awards go to UNLV professors with a record of high-quality interdisciplinary research study output that has actually been recognized by scholars and journals within and beyond their main disciplines.
