Babakus, Pierce, Okunade Named Palmer Professors

Dr. Emin Babakus

Dr. Charles A. Pierce

Dr. Albert Okunade

Three faculty members were designated Suzanne Downs Palmer Professors at the fall Fogelman College faculty and staff meeting held August 25.

Dr. Emin Babakus, Professor of Marketing and Supply Chain Management, received a Palmer Award in the Teaching Category. Babakus was recognized for his excellent student evaluations and his success at teaching difficult courses successfully at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Dr. Charles A. Pierce, Professor of Management, received a Palmer Professorship and was cited for his sustained and exemplary scholarship with three papers in A+ journals and seven in A journals within the last three years. Dr. Albert Okunade received a Palmer Award for his extraordinary service contributions to the FCBE student honors program and his long record of contributions in service roles to the department, college and university, and to the economics profession.

This year's winners were recommended by a selection committee of nine previous Palmer Award winners who reviewed many competitive nominations from the faculty for these awards. Dr. Rajiv Grover, Dean of the Fogelman College of Business & Economics, presented each winner with a recognition plaque and a cash award of $10,000.

The Suzanne Downs Palmer Professorship Awards Program was established in 2003 by alumnus Dan Palmer in appreciation for his U of M education in the business school and in memory of his wife, Suzanne. The purpose of the prestigious Palmer Awards is to recognize outstanding individual faculty contributions to achieving the mission of the Fogelman College of Business & Economics. Awards can be given in three categories: Teaching, Research, and Service.
