AWARDS AND KUDOS
Professors of Distinction named by the College of Arts and Sciences
Four professors in the College of Arts and Sciences were named College Professors of Distinction in recognition of their exceptional service, teaching and research or creative work. Russell Monson of ecology and evolutionary biology, Gerard Hauser of communication, Alice Healy of psychology and Charles Judd of psychology were honored at a Dec. 3 event, where they discussed their research. The title Professor of Distinction is held throughout their careers in CU-Boulder's College of Arts and Sciences, and is not to be confused with Distinguished Professor, an honor given to professors campuswide to recognize their excellence in their work, teaching and service.
