Richard Rimanyi Distinguished Term Professor
Congratulations Professor Richard Rimanyi for being named as the Bowman & Gordon Gray Distinguished Term Professor!
The Bowman and Gordon Gray Professorship is one of the University’s most esteemed awards for excellence in undergraduate teaching. These professorships help Carolina support its best teachers and scholars, providing a salary supplement, an annual fund for research, and a one-semester research and study assignment during the five-year term of the award.
The late Gordon Gray, who graduated from UNC in 1930, and the estate of Bowman Gray Jr., a 1929 graduate, established the professorships in 1980 in the College of Arts and Sciences. Bernard Gray, UNC Class of 1972 and Gordon’s son, significantly enhanced the 5-year professorships with a gift in 1999 to expand the salary and research supplement, and include a semester-long sabbatical.
Rimanyi is the third member of the Department to hold this position, joining Peter Mucha, who received the award in 2012, and Professor Sue Goodman, who held the award from 1991 to 1994.
Congratulations to Professor Rimanyi on this well-deserved recognition!
