2017 CNAS Faculty and Staff Awards
CNAS recognized outstanding faculty and staff for the sixth year at a reception on April 28, 2017. The award winners were nominated by departmental personnel committees, department heads or students. The nominations were then reviewed by a faculty committee for the faculty/staff awards and by a student committee for the student-nominated award. The award winners receive a certificate and a small monetary award. We are proud to announce the following award winners for 2017!

In addition he was appointed a Curators Professor starting in 1999. The award winner receives a certificate and $1500 to be spent over the next year on students, research supplies, summer salary or travel.
