From the OSU press release:
CORVALLIS, Ore. â€“ A longtime plant microbiology researcher who holds the highest academic rank possible for faculty at Oregon State University has been named dean of the University Honors College, officials announced today.
Daniel J. Arp, one of a handful of current faculty to carry the title of â€œdistinguished professor,â€? has been at Oregon State since 1990, when he came to Corvallis from the University of California-Riverside. At OSU, he was named the L.L. Stewart Professor of Gene Research in 2002 and department chair of Botany and Plant Pathology in 2004…
…â€œDan embodies the outstanding academic achievement to which honors students aspire and has a passion for sharing his knowledge with students,â€? said Randhawa. â€œWhile at OSU, he has served as an advisor and mentor to scores of graduate, undergraduate and high school students, even as he teaches a full complement of courses and maintains an very active research program. Our students will benefit enormously from his dedication and personal example.â€?
