Kahn Appointed SUNY Distinguished Service Professor

I am pleased to inform you that Drew Kahn has been appointed to the rank of Distinguished Service Professor by the State University of New York Board of Trustees. This prestigious honor is reserved for faculty members whose service extends far beyond the campus, recognizing individuals for professional excellence and extraordinary commitment to applying scholarship to the greater good.

I cannot think of anyone who better represents and lives the principles of an engaged faculty member than Professor Kahn. He is an amazing community builder, teacher, and champion of social justice. His work is grounded in the mission of Buffalo State and has deepened the ways we manifest a commitment and dedication to social justice on campus, locally, and globally. His work is institutionalized at Buffalo State, and we and our communities are the better for it.

Professor Kahn will be officially inducted into the SUNY Distinguished Academy at a ceremony in Albany in May. Next fall, we will honor him on campus at our Faculty-Staff Recognition Ceremony. In the meantime, please join me in congratulating him on this wonderful honor.
