Rudaz to Direct Honors Program


School of Physics and Astronomy Professor Serge Rudaz has been named as the founding director of the new, campus-wide University Honors Program.

The new honors program will begin with incoming undergraduates in fall 2008. Rudaz will first work to integrate current college-based honors programs into a single, more visible, campus-wide program. The new honors program is designed to attract the very best students and strengthen and expand the honors opportunities for all undergraduates.

The appointment was announced by University of Minnesota Provost Thomas Sullivan. "Professor Rudaz will provide the dynamic academic and administrative leadership necessary to create a new and exciting honors program," Sullivan said. "I look forward to working with him."
