Congratulations to Professor Fritz Graf

August 26, 2011

In its meeting of June 5, the Board of Trustees conferred the title of Distinguished University Professor to Professor Fritz Graf. This title is awarded permanently to no more than three exceptional faculty per year and recognizes accomplishments in research, scholarly or creative work, teaching, and service that are both distinguished and distinctive. Professor Graf received it especially for his many outstanding contributions to the study of Classics and ancient religions that he made as a researcher and teacher at several European and American universities in the course of his career.

In March, Professor Graf also received the Distinguished Scholar Award from President Gordon Gee. Given annually only to six professors across all the colleges of the university, the award honors excellence in scholarship. In Prof. Graf's case, the award recognizes his contribution to the fields of Classics and the religions of the classical world.

We congratulate Prof. Graf on this wonderful achievement and the recognition it brings to the department.
