Butler, Baccus among
2010-11 Regents’ Professors
Two Texas State professors are among five Regents’ Professors selected by The Texas State University System’s Board of Regents for the 2010-11 academic year.
David Butler joined the Texas State faculty in 1997. He is a professor in the Department of Geography, as well as a graduate program advisor. He specializes in geomorphology, biogeography, natural hazards, mountain environments and environmental change, and research of Glacier National Park.
John Baccus has been teaching in the Department of Biology at Texas State since 1975. He specializes in wildlife biology with research interests in community ecology, ecology and management of white-tailed deer, and habitat management for endangered species.
Regents’ Professors receive a $5,000 award and a commemorative medallion. They will also maintain the title of Texas State University Regents’ Professor for the duration of their service. To be considered, nominees must be full-time faculty members for at least five consecutive years at a system campus and demonstrate a record of distinguished teaching, research and scholarly activity; an outstanding record of service at the local, state and national levels; and a record of commitment to the university.
