Michael Carolan received the Frankfurt Book Fair’s getAbstract 2022 International Book Award for Business Impact. Carolan was flown to Germany in October and honored during a formal ceremony.

Carolan’s newest book, A Decent Meal: Building Empathy in a Divided America, was selected from 10,000 non-fiction titles. The jury chose it “for its timely relevance that extends beyond the corporate world” and for discussing “how to overcome the deep chasms and loss of empathy in American society. Rather than proposing policy and legislative measures, Michael Carolan focuses on building empathy on the individual level.” Read the full press release here.

Carolan and his work will be featured in an upcoming episode of The Audit, CSU’s new podcast. He wears many hats at CSU: Professor of Sociology; College of Liberal Arts Associate Dean for Research; Co-Director of CSU’s Food Systems Institute for Research, Engagement and Learning; and Engagement and Extension Food Systems Specialist.

Congratulations, Michael!
