James Duncan Named 2004-2005 Distinguished Scholar-Teacher

Mechanical Engineering Professor James Duncan has been selected as a 2004-2005 Distinguished Scholar-Teacher.

The Distinguished Scholar-Teacher Program honors faculty who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement along with equally outstanding accomplishments as teachers. This program recognizes faculty members who have led the way in scholarship and teaching, who have brought a passion for learning to their colleagues and students, and who serve as models of what a professor at a fine research university should be. Each year, the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs, Ellin K. Scholnick, chooses a panel of former Distinguished Scholar-Teachers to review nominees for the award.

As a Distinguished Scholar, Professor Duncan will receive $5,000 to support instructional and scholarly activities. He will also make a public presentation in the fall 2004 semester on a topic of scholarly interest.
