The cover story details Associate Professor of Biology Gretchen LeBuhn’s nationwide effort to ensure the health of pollinating bees, one of our most vital workers in the food chain. Other features explore equally ambitious projects on the part of faculty and staff: “Out of the Shadows” tells how Professor of History Trevor Getz rescued an important story before it slipped through the cracks of history; “Well Versed” introduces readers to The Poetry Center’s newly launched Digital Archive; and in “Rumor Control," Chair of the Cinema Department Daniel Bernardi discusses his research on the impact of rumor -- or narrative IEDs -- on counterinsurgency operations.

Read on to discover how many SF State faculty and alumni have won a Pulitzer Prize during the past two decades, and why one recent graduate is riding a motorcycle from San Francisco to Lahore, Pakistan.
