K.J. Ray Liu honored as 2007-2008 Distinguished Scholar-Teacher


Congratulations to Professor K.J. Ray Liu (ECE/ISR), who has been selected as a 2007-2008 Distinguished Scholar-Teacher by the University of Maryland. He joins Professor Michael Fu (Robert H. Smith School of Business/ISR), 2004-2005; Professor Steven Marcus (ECE/ISR), 2000-2001; and Professor Emeritus Thomas McAvoy (ChemBE/Bioeng/ISR), 1997-1998; as ISR winners of the award in the past decade.

The Distinguished Scholar-Teacher program recognizes faculty members who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement along with equally outstanding accomplishments as teachers. Liu is one of six Maryland professors to receive the honor this year. Nominees for the award are selected by their peers; the six winners are chosen by a panel of former Distinguished Scholar-Teachers.

The Scholar-Teachers "[bring] a passion for learning to their colleagues and students, and... serve as models of what a professor at a fine research university should be," Provost William Destler said in a written statement.

Winners receive a $5,000 cash award to support instructional and scholarly activities, and make a public presentation in the fall semester on a topic of scholarly interest.
