David Richman, Professor of Theatre and Dance, has been selected by the Provost to receive the Class of 1938 Professorship Award. This award recognizes a UNH faculty member for excellence in teaching and provides a discretionary allowance for professional expenses for a three-year term.
With the help of the University of New Hampshire Foundation, UNH initiated the Professorships program in 1990 to help support faculty members in their teaching, public service, and research. The purpose of the program is to help the University be more competitive in hiring new faculty members, reward outstanding academic accomplishments, and enhance the faculty’s opportunities for superior scholarship, innovative teaching, and meaningful service. Professorships are awarded by the provost based on nominations by deans.
