Three years after being targeted by Yale student mobs, Yale professor Nicholas Christakis received the highest award for a Yale University professor for his work. Last week, he was awarded the title of Sterling professor, the highest honor for Yale professors.

This came three years after students protested him and his wife, Erika, for their views on not choosing to be offended by Halloween costumes. It led to both Nicholas and his wife to resign from his position at a residential college and her from teaching at the university.
