Kent Berridge Named Distinguished University Professor
Nine faculty members have received one of the University of Michigan's top honors as Distinguished University Professors.
The Distinguished University Professorships recognize exceptional scholarly and/or creative achievements, national and international reputation, superior teaching and mentoring, and an impressive record of service. In creating these positions in 1947, the Board of Regents intended that Distinguished University Professors be recognized for their great contributions to the University and the nation. Each Distinguished University Professorship bears a special name, determined by the appointive professor in consultation with her or his dean. In addition, newly appointed Distinguished University Professors are expected to deliver an inaugural lecture during the first year of appointment.
Congratulations to Professor Berridge!
