Lenhart Awarded UT’s Highest Faculty Honor

NIMBioS Associate Director for Education, Outreach & Diversity Suzanne Lenhart has been named a Chancellor’s Professor at the University of Tennessee (UT), where she is professor of mathematics. This is the highest lifetime honor that can be awarded to UT faculty. Lenhart was recognized for her work in mathematical biology, her long history of NSF support, her contributions to NIMBioS, and also her service as director of the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program in the Mathematics Department for 15 years (now she directs the summer REU program at NIMBioS). The Chancellor’s Professor honor began in 2008, and the five from this year now bring the number selected to 11 total. Those selected are nominated by their college dean, screened by previous Chancellor’s Professors, and recommended by the provost. The honor comes with a one-time research stipend of $20,000. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Lenhart!
