Michigan Tech Geology Professor John Gierke has been named one of three Michigan Distinguished Professors of the Year.
This a statewide award for all of Michigan. The President's Council of State Universities of Michigan initiated this
award this year at the suggestion of the State Academic Officers, and
today the recipients were announced. Each of the Michigan public
universities nominated one recipient and a committee of provosts made the selection of the three
recipients. John will be recognized and receive his award at a luncheon
in June in Lansing.
