Congratulations to Professor John Taber for being named Regents' Professor by the UNM College of Arts and Sciences! 

As per the description on the College web site, "Regents' Professor is a special title bestowed on selected senior faculty members who, in the judgment of the Dean and on the advice of a faculty selection committee, merit recognition of their accomplishments as teachers, scholars and leaders both in University affairs and in their national/international professional communities." 

Professor Taber's active term as a Regents' Professor is 2015 to 2018, and he will retain the title for the remainder of his career at UNM.  By earning this title, Professor Taber joins a very small and very distinguished group of Professors in the College of Arts and Sciences.  Please join us in congratulating him on this well-deserved recognition of his lasting contributions to his field, his students, and the UNM community.
