Ben Lough Recognized by Provost with 2021 Campus Distinguished Promotion Award
June 01, 2021
Lough named recipient of Campus Distinguished Promotion Award
During its annual promotion review process, the Campus Committee on Promotion and Tenure identifies exceptional cases of scholars whose contributions have been extraordinary in terms of quality of work and overall achievement. A small percentage of scholars at each level of tenured faculty promotion are selected to receive Campus Distinguished Promotion Awards. Each receives a discretionary fund to support their scholarly activities.
This special recognition is given to “those scholars whose contributions were truly exceptional… based on the scope, quality and impact of scholarship, teaching, service and engagement efforts.” Professor Lough was among only 12 associate and full professors selected from the over 100 successful promotion cases, and one of only five full professor awardees.
Congratulations to these deserving individuals and valued members of the University of Illinois.
