In May 2005 Rodney Hill, professor of architecture at Texas A&M
University, was named holder of one of Texas A&M’s
Eppright Professorships in Undergraduate Teaching Excellence.
“These professorships are conferred upon some of the university’s
most distinguished teachers who have exhibited excellence and
devotion to the education of undergraduate students at Texas
A&M,” said David Prior, executive vice president and
provost. “Outstanding teaching of the undergraduate student
population continues to be a priority with Texas A&M, and
the new appointees along with the current holders of University
Professorships in Undergraduate Teaching Excellence signify this
commitment in its highest sense.”
The appointments are for a period of three years and carry an
annual salary supplement of $5,000 and an annual discretionary
income to support the recipient’s teaching program and
related professional development.
