Steve Ruggles, Regents Professor
Congratulations to Steve Ruggles, who has been named Regents Professor. The Regents Professorship is the highest rank the University of Minnesota offers and is limited to 25 positions. This is a great honor to Steve, one very richly deserved.
The Regents Professor position was established in 1965 by the Board of Regents to recognize the national and international prominence of faculty members. It serves as the highest recognition for faculty who have made unique contributions to the quality of the University of Minnesota through exceptional accomplishments in teaching, research and scholarship or creative work, and contributions to the public good.
