The honor is reserved for no more than 30 faculty members at any given time.

Jill McCluskey, Distinguished Professor of Sustainability and Associate Director of the School of Economic Sciences, and Scot Hulbert, interim Associate Dean for Research, are the two CAHNRS honorees.

“Promotion to Regents Professor is the most elite rank a university can bestow on a faculty member,” said CAHNRS Dean André-Denis Wright. “It marks the highest standards of excellence in teaching, scholarship and service. The fact that two CAHNRS professors have received this distinction is indicative of the kind of transformative scholarship our faculty is engaged in. The work that Dr. McCluskey and Dr. Hulbert do reaches far beyond the walls of our college and our university, and their promotion to Regents Professor is an honor that is both hard-earned and well deserved.”
