The Arizona Board of Regents on Thursday confirmed the appointments of six University of Arizona faculty members, including ECE professor Marwan Krunz. Other recipients are Steven Archer, Sonia Colina, Dante Lauretta, Sallie Marston and Ian Pepper.
The designation of Regents Professor is an honored position reserved for faculty scholars of exceptional ability who have achieved national or international distinction. The Regents Professor title serves as recognition of the highest academic merit and is awarded to faculty members who have made a unique contribution to the quality of the university through distinguished accomplishments in teaching, scholarship, research or creative work.
"These outstanding members of our faculty exemplify everything we strive to achieve at this university," said University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins. "We are so grateful to have such world-renowned scholars and teachers as part of the Wildcat family."
