UNH Recognizes Achievements of Nancy Kinner by Naming Her University Professor

Nov 29, 2012

Nancy Kinner, Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has been honored for outstanding contributions to her field and to the university community with a University Professorship. University Professorships are awarded to full professors who have demonstrated the highest levels of excellence in teaching, scholarship (including the creative arts), and service during an extended period of tenure at UNH. 

Recipients of the University Professorships are expected to have attained international stature in their discipline because of their significant contributions to the advancement of knowledge or aesthetic understandings. They will have received other widely recognized honors such as international prizes, fellowships, or appointments.  

Supported through the UNH Foundation, University Professorships are the highest form of recognition at the university and are available to no more than four individuals at any one time. The position is held as long as the individual is employed by the university.

Other current University Professors are:

  • Kevin Short (Professor, Mathematics)
  • John Aber (Provost and Professor, Natural Resources and the Environment)
  • David Finkelhor (Director of the UNH Crimes against Children Research Center; Co-director of the Family Research Laboratory; and Professor, Sociology)
