Gerardo Marín, senior vice provost for academic affairs, has been named to the 100 Colombians 2013 list for his academic achievements and contributions to higher education.
“I am humbled by being selected to join a group that includes past recipients such as (painter and sculptor) Fernando Botero, (novelist) Gabriel Garcia Marquez, (pop musician) Shakira, and others who have contributed so much to the country’s future and shown that Colombia is about much more than the press reports on violence and drugs,” Marín said.
The Fusionarte Association compiles the list, which honors Colombians living abroad who excel in business, education, the arts, or government.
Marín has published more than 140 articles and eight books on psychology and served as president of the
Inter-american Society of Psychology. At USF he has developed and coordinated international study programs and campus diversity initiatives.
