Professor Robert Percival

The Regents' Award is the highest honor that the Board of Regents bestows to recognize exemplary faculty achievement. The faculty members are honored for outstanding contributions in one of five categories: research/scholarship/creative activity, teaching, public service, collaboration, and mentoring. The board established the Faculty Awards in 1995 to publicly recognize distinguished performance by educators and researchers within the university system.
In nominating Professor Percival, Dean Karen Rothenberg
highlighted his collaborative work with Professor Miranda Schreurs
, who holds appointments both as Associate Professor in the Department of Government at the University of Maryland College Park and as Affiliate Associate Professor of Law at the School of Law. Dean Rothenberg wrote, "their work in Comparative Environmental Law and Politics is an outstanding example of an interdisciplinary initiative that has significantly benefited many students from our two campuses."
The Regents will recognize Professor Percival and other Regents' Award recipients at their April 8th meeting at the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
