Heath, Malloy & Poston Named as Palmer Professors
For release: August 31, 2010
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 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.
This year’s winners were recommended by a selection committee of nine previous Palmer
Award winners who reviewed nominations for these awards.
Each recipient received a recognition plaque and a cash award of $10,000.
