Prof. Jeffrey Collett named University Distinguished Professor

We are excited to announce that Professor and former Department Head Jeff Collett was named University Distinguished Professor (UDP).  UDP is the highest academic recognition awarded by the University, and the title of UDP is bestowed upon full professors on the basis of outstanding scholarship and achievement.  Professors receiving this title hold the distinction for the duration of their association with Colorado State University.  As of last year, there were 22 UDPs and 31 emeritus UDPs across 27 academic departments.

Jeff was nominated for being a leader in understanding critical environmental issues including air quality, his distinguished service to the university and broader scientific community, and his commitment to mentorship and education. He will join Sonia Kreidenweis, Dave Randall, A. R. Ravishankara, and Sue van den Heever as UDPs in our department, and Graeme Stephens and Tom Vonder Haar as Emeritus UDPs.

Jeff will receive this honor at the Provost’s Awards Luncheon on April 10.
