Dr. Dawn Boothe, a professor in the Department of Anatomy, Physiology, and Pharmacology at the College of Veterinary Medicine, has been named one of four Alumni Professors at Auburn University.

The university announced the recipients of its 2016 Faculty Awards, recognizing some of the institution’s most innovative teachers, researchers, and scholars for their unique and distinguished contributions to the university’s mission.

Presented annually, the Faculty Awards honor individuals and groups of faculty for excellence in teaching, research, and outreach. Following a competitive review process, recipients are chosen by selection committees comprised of faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Award winners will be recognized at the annual Faculty Awards Ceremony hosted by the Office of the Provost in early 2017.

“This year’s recipients were selected from an outstanding group of nominated faculty,” said Timothy Boosinger, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “Our awards not only represent the exceptional contributions of these faculty members to Auburn’s mission, but also illustrate their extraordinary service and dedication to the University.”
