Interdisciplinary Excellence Built On World-Class Knowledge

Our world-class professors have received many national and international honors over the years. To honor that recognition we have listed those awards on our national and international recognitions page.

The school invites distinguished alumni to make a presentation as part of the symposia series. The School makes a presentation to the distinguished alumnus and records their name on a plaque outside Sloan 201. Visit the Distinguished Alumni page.
