Kiger Named Distinguished Scholar-Teacher


Kenneth Kiger, Keystone Professor and Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs at the University of Maryland (UMD), has been selected as a 2022-23 Distinguished Scholar-Teacher by the university. A member of the UMD mechanical engineering faculty since 1995, he is among six highly accomplished UMD faculty members who were chosen for the recognition this year.

As a Distinguished Scholar-Teacher, Professor Kiger will receive $5,000 to support instructional and scholarly activities, and will deliver a public presentation during the fall semester on a topic of scholarly interest.

The Distinguished Scholar-Teacher Program honors faculty who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement along with equally remarkable accomplishments as teachers. The program recognizes faculty members who have led the way in scholarship and teaching, who have brought a passion for learning to their colleagues and students, and who serve as models of excellence for faculty at a top research university. Each year, the Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs, D. John Bertot, chooses a panel of former Distinguished Scholar-Teachers to review nominees for the award.

The 2022-23 Distinguished Scholar-Teachers also include Caren Chang (Cell Biology & Molecular Genetics), Allen Davis (Civil and Environmental Engineering), Michelle Girvan (Physics), Rebecca Hann (Robert H. Smith School of Business; Accounting), and Matthew Roesch (Psychology).

Several UMD mechanical engineering faculty members have been selected for the program over the years, including Amr Baz, Hugh Bruck, James Dally, James Duncan, Mohammad Modarres, and James Wallace.
