Anna Mary Mueller, along with her daughters Elizabeth Larson and Rachel Mueller, has established a fellowship fund in honor of her late husband and former faculty member, Charles Mueller. Chuck was a professor of sociology at Iowa for 32 years. He was beloved by his students and a renowned scholar. His research made major contributions in several areas, especially in the sociology of work and organizations. He passed away in 2013.
The Charles W. Mueller Fellowship Fund will provide one or more summer fellowships to graduate students starting in 2023. Summer funding means a lot to graduate students because most fellowships offer support only for spring and fall semesters, leaving them to scramble for funds during the summer months. By extending student support, the new fund will honor Chuck’s memory and enhance his legacy of helping students whenever he could in his role as Director of Graduate Studies for sociology.
The Department of Sociology and Criminology is fundraising to match his family’s donation. If you would like to donate, please visit this link.
