Four professors have been honored for their outstanding contributions in their fields and to the university community. Mathematics professor Kevin Short has been named a University Professor. Professors Martin Lee, physics; William McDowell, natural resources; and Janet Polasky, history; have received Presidential Chair appointments.
The recipients of the University Professorship and the Presidential Chairs represent the high level of excellence for which UNH is known and further the university’s efforts to attract and retain talented faculty. Presidential Chairs are a new way to recognize faculty members’ many contributions and years of service. Funds for these awards are made available by the generosity of alumni and private donors through the UNH Foundation.
