Shandas named CU Distinguished ProfessorSep 16, 2019
In addition to building Colorado’s first stand-alone Department of Bioengineering and subsequent degree programs, Shandas has spent more than 25 years using his expertise in academia to solve real-world problems in clinical medicine.
“Very few faculty around the world have made such a significant impact,” said Martin Dunn, dean of the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing.
In recognition of his influence on the CU system, Shandas has been selected as one of seven CU Distinguished Professors, the highest accolade bestowed on faculty members. He’s one of only 106 professors among CU’s four campuses to have earned the distinction since its inception in 1977. The Board of Regents votes on the finalists, who are selected based on outstanding performances in scholarly or creative work, student learning, and service at CU.
