Four UTCS Students Selected as Dean's Honors


Four graduating UTCS students have been selected Dean's Honored Graduates for 2013. Only 20 students are named Dean's Honored Graduates in the College of Natural Sciences each year. Students Ben Braun (CS and Math), Kevin Luecke (Astronomy and CS), Joe Tessler (CS and UTeach), and Victor Vu (CS) will be recognized with a book award and framed certificate, seating on stage at graduation, a brunch and recognition ceremony hosted by the dean, and recognition on a plaque located on the first floor of W.C.

Dean's Honored Graduate

Dean’s Honored Graduate is the highest honor awarded to graduating seniors in the College of Natural Sciences. It is restricted to fewer than one percent of the graduating class of the college during an academic year. Dean’s Honored Graduates are nominated by departments and then selected by vote of a faculty committee. Factors considered in the voting are excellence in the classroom as well as substantial achievement in scientific research, an independent intellectual pursuit, or exceptional service and leadership to the college and university.
