The Berkman Grant
In the Fall of 2012, Cameron received the Berkman Grant for Meisner: From the Page to the Stage.

The Berkman Faculty Development Fund, supported by a gift in the memory of Sybiel Altman Berkman, A'31, is a small grants program in support of professional development. Full-time faculty in teaching, research, tenure and librarian/archivist tracks are eligible.

The Berkman program was established to help support projects that would otherwise be difficult to fund. The program is directed primarily to junior faculty whose access to external support is less well developed, and to faculty working in chronically under-funded areas. In cases where a specific need is well documented, grants may be made to senior faculty and those working in fields that more easily attract outside support. Grants are awarded for a three-year period.


Cameron created a non-credit series of staged readings of plays addessing themes of race, identity and other social themes. The reading series was designed to expose the students of the school of Drama and eventually the entire CMU community to plays from and for the underrepresented communities that we otherwise cannot produce in our season of plays. Aimed at enriching the sense of collaboration, these readings are open for participation by the entire School of Drama population, all areas of student training, faculty and staff. Included in the series is a preshow discussion/presentation by a student from the Dramaturgy option.
