- Professor Lorraine Francis has been named a College of Science and Engineering (CSE) Distinguished Professor for her exceptional contributions to teaching, international reputation in scholarly research, and genuine commitment to the College and its activities. Francis will receive a one-time unrestricted fund of $15,000 to be used for professional development or research. No more than 20 CSE Distinguished Professorships exist at any time, so Francis is truly being recognized as an elite faculty member among her peers. Francis was selected for the award by CSE Dean Mostafa Kaveh, upon recommendation from the College's Awards and Honors Committee.
