FIVE PROFESSORS NAMED ALUMNI PROFESSORS AT AUBURN

AUBURN -- Five additional Auburn University professors have been awarded Alumni Professorships by the Auburn Alumni Association, says interim Provost William Walker

The five are: Sabat Adanur, Textile Engineering; Ronald Barrett, Aerospace Engineering; Theodore Becker, Political Science; Troy Best, Zoology and Wildlife Science; and Donna Sollie, Human Development and Family Studies

Professors receive a nonrenewable $3,000 yearly salary supplement for five years, and are selected on the basis of outstanding teaching and research.

The new awards will be effective with the start of the 1999-2000 academic year.

"The Auburn Alumni Association funds the Alumni Professor program because of its desire to support distinguished faculty," said Walker. "The program is designed to reward faculty members who have been recognized by their peers and colleagues as making outstanding and exceptional contributions to the university's academic programs."
