Pease join me in recognizing and celebrating those members of our accomplished faculty who have distinguished themselves in their disciplines and in their work at the University of New Hampshire.
Again this year our faculty has selected a remarkable cohort of award recipients whose work in the classroom, laboratory, and field sites represents the best of UNH's teaching, scholarship, and public engagement. In the following pages you will learn about faculty excellence in fields ranging from microbiology, kinesiology, and economics, to mathematics, political science, and agricultural mechanization. Best of all, you will come to know the creative, passionate faculty members who communicate their expertise to their students, colleagues, communities, the state, and the world. Whether it is helping students to understand the ethical standards of scholarship, mentoring a brand new graduate student, leading students on international expeditions, or simulating real-world challenges in an undergraduate class, these faculty members illustrate why they are among our most valuable resources.
The work represented by this year's excellence recipients brings to life the UNH vision—a place where the best attributes of the New England liberal arts college combine with the sophistication and opportunity found in a comprehensive research university.
These stories are compelling and inspiring. I am sure you will enjoy learning about the work our wonderful faculty does here at the University.
