KU has announced that Rolfe Mandel, senior scientist at the KGS and professor in the Department of Anthropology, has been named as a University Distinguished Professor.  Rolfe, who has a courtesy appointment in the Department of Geography, is well-recognized in the world of geoarcheology, geomorphology, and soil science for his multi-disciplinary contributions to predicting and understanding buried archeological sites.  He is head of the Odyssey Geoarchaeology Program at KU, which focuses on the study of early humans on the Great Plains.  This appointment was based on Rolfe’s scholarship, teaching, and service to the discipline and the state.  It is a well-deserved honor and an appropriate recognition of his hard work and creative accomplishment.  Congratulations, Rolfe.
