Stony Brook University President Maurie McInnis formally honored the 10 professors who were named SUNY Distinguished Faculty in 2022 at a special awards dinner November 30 at Sunwood Estate.
“This evening, we celebrate 10 scholars, researchers, mentors, and teachers who are part of a legacy of excellence at Stony Brook,” McInnis said. “Who represent some of the best minds of our time. Whose work has made an impact.”
The honored faculty members were: Distinguished Teaching Professor of Management Jadranka Skorin-Kapov, Distinguished Professor of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology Carol Carter, Distinguished Professor of Political Science Leonie Huddy, Distinguished Professor of Linguistics Richard Larson, Distinguished Professor of Physics Robert Shrock, Distinguished Professor of Art Katy Siegel, Distinguished Professor of Medicine Vincent Yang, Distinguished Professor of Physics and Astronomy Abhay Deshpande, Distinguished Professor of Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies Mary Jo Bona and Distinguished Professor of Mathematics Christopher Bishop.
The faculty members were appointed to the rank of SUNY Distinguished Professor for 2021-22 in April by the SUNY Board of Trustees. The rank is a prestigious honor bestowed upon professionals of the highest caliber.
The Distinguished Professorship is conferred upon faculty having achieved national or international prominence and a distinguished reputation within the individual’s chosen field through significant contributions to the research and scholarship, or through artistic performance or achievement in the fine and performing arts. The Distinguished Teaching Professorship is conferred upon instructional faculty for outstanding teaching competence at the graduate, undergraduate or professional levels.
