At the November 3 CU Board of Regents meeting, electrical engineering professor and chair Stephen Gedney was named a CU Distinguished Professor. Gedney becomes one of only 129 distinguished professors in the history of the CU System. He becomes one of four on the CU Denver campus and the second from the college, joining bioengineering chair and professor Robin Shandas.
The Regents will formally present Gedney with the award at an upcoming meeting, and this will be celebrated at the college level as well.
In Gedney’s nomination letter, college dean Martin Dunn said, “In summary, Professor Gedney is an exceptional educator, researcher, and a visionary academic leader. Along all of these dimensions he has made remarkable impact that has served CU exceptionally well. While I found it hard to find enough superlatives to adequately describe Professor Gedney, I am thrilled that I can also rely on the admiration the professional and student letter writers all expressed for his remarkable abilities and impact as a professor to help me make the case.”
Congratulations, Stephen, on this well-deserved honor.
