Michigan Ross and University Regents Recognize Outstanding Faculty
A number of Michigan Ross faculty members have been recognized and honored for their excellence in teaching, research, and service both by the school and the university’s Board of Regents. Ross also gained another distinguished university professor.
On May 19 the regents approved promotions for six Ross faculty. Damian Beil, Jeffrey Sanchez-Burks, and David Wooten were promoted to the rank of professor. Felipe Csaszar, Scott Rick, and Chris Williams were promoted to associate professor, with tenure.
In addition, Wally Hopp was appointed the C.K. Prahalad Distinguished University Professor of Business and Engineering. This honor is for U-M’s elite faculty, and Hopp joins Jane Dutton as one of two distinguished university professors currently at Ross.
Michigan Ross faculty also recently honored their own with the annual faculty awards and the Neary Teaching Excellence Award. And they celebrated the careers of two retiring professors — Tom Schriber, who was with Ross for 50 years, and longtime accounting lecturer Karen Bird.
