Faculty Recognition

Faculty Recognition 2017

Members of the College of Medicine and Life Sciences Faculty were honored April 27, 2017.

For the 25th year, we celebrated our faculty members at the annual dinner. We honor them for their dedication and commitment to the mission and goals of the College of Medicine and Life Sciences and the University during the 2016 calendar year.

It is a time to recognize faculty members for their longtime service, to honor individuals who have excelled in their careers, teaching and research, and to acknowledge individuals for their commitment to mentoring our students. We also recognize new emeritus faculty members.

We would like to thank the honorees and all of the staff and volunteers who made the evening a success.
