Associate Professor of English David Treuer has been named a "Top 'Under 40' Scholar" by Diverse: Issues In Higher Education Magazine in its annual edition recognizing rising stars in the academy. The January 7 Diverse profiles 12 under 40 American scholars "who are making their mark in the academy through teaching, research and service." Professor Treuer noted that the honor also goes to "my family, community, teachers, colleagues, and most of all, my students (who have asked and pushed and questioned all these years). I thank each and every one of them and am grateful for the chance to teach and learn." Professor Treuer won a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2007, among other awards.
