University’s highest faculty honor awarded this year to four in the College of Arts and Sciences, 11 on all CU campuses
The University of Colorado has added 11 new members to its roster of distinguished professors, a title signifying the highest honor awarded to faculty across the CU system’s four campuses.
CU distinguished professors are tenured faculty members who demonstrate exemplary performance in research or creative work; a record of excellence in promoting learning and student attainment of knowledge and skills; and outstanding service to the profession, the university and its affiliates.
