Congratulations to Dr. Ilya Tsvankin, who has been honored with the title University Distinguished Professor.  This is the highest honorific title that can be conferred on a tenured full professor who does not currently hold a chaired professorship.  It is selectively granted to those who have brought great recognition to Mines through the impact of their teaching, mentoring, discovery, innovation efforts, and international recognition. We are proud that Dr. Tsvankin is an integral part of the CWP team.
