With approval Sept. 14 by the Board of Regents, the University of Colorado has introduced seven newly designated distinguished professors, six of whom are affiliated with the CU Boulder campus.
They are Natalie Ahn, James Anaya, Elizabeth Fenn, John Lynch, Warren Motte and Roy Parker. From the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, Larry Green also was designated a distinguished professor.
Distinguished professors are faculty members who demonstrate exemplary performance in research or creative work, a record of excellence in classroom teaching and supervision of individual learning, and outstanding service to the profession, the university and its affiliates.
The CU campuses nominate faculty for the award, the highest honor bestowed upon faculty across the system's four campuses. President Benson then reviews the nominations and, with the recommendation of the Distinguished Professors Committee, forwards the candadates' names to the Board of Regents.
