Drs. Swanton and Marshall Named Professor Emeriti

Posted on Monday, March 1st, 2021

Drs. Stephen Marshall (School of Environmental Sciences) and Clarence Swanton (Department of Plant Agriculture) have been named University Professor Emeriti. Traditionally, the University of Guelph presents its University Professor Emeriti and Faculty Awards during convocation ceremonies. With COVID-19 restrictions in place and the inability to gather for convocation, a special online ceremony was held to present these awards – the highest honours bestowed by the University of Guelph. University Professor Emeriti designations are made on the recommendation of the Senate to those who demonstrate sustained, outstanding scholarship that is internationally recognized.
