ATHENS, Ohio (Feb. 6, 2007) -- Ohio University professor Tadeusz Malinski was recognized for the Distinguished Professor award at the Ohio University Founders Day Celebration on Feb. 2.
The Distinguished Professor Award, Ohio University's highest honor for a faculty member, recognizes scholarly accomplishment, professional reputation and contributions to the university. A lifetime designation, it provides one quarter of professional leave and the privilege of naming one student annually to receive a Distinguished Professor Scholarship.
"This day gives us an opportunity to recognize the highest achievements of our faculty and students," Provost Kathy Krendl says. "And it lets us give an update on where we are in terms of our goals and objectives related to the academic plan."
The Founders Day celebration observes and honors Ohio University's rich history and acknowledges current individual contributions that make it an outstanding academic institution that looks ahead to a vibrant future.
The day also featured a poster presentation tied to the Vision OHIO academic plan as well as an evening lecture by the winner of this year's Distinguished Professor Award.
