TAMPA, Fla. (Mar. 26, 2013)—The University of South Florida faculty members who hold the distinction of being elected as Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) recently held their third annual luncheon, hosted by USF Research & Innovation in celebration of their accomplishments. USF has 36 AAAS Fellows, 15 of whom were elected to Fellow status in 2012.

Fellow status is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers. The Association of American Universities (AAU) recognizes AAAS Fellows as an indicator of the distinction of an institution’s faculty.

AAAS Fellow status is just one of the many honors that USF faculty can receive. The USF Faculty Honors, Prizes, and Awards website recognizes and catalogues faculty members with distinction based on fellowships, prizes and recognition awards by the Association of American Universities (AAU), Top American Research Universities (TARU), National Research Council (NRC), and other highly prestigious national and international awards. A full listing of USF AAAS Fellows, including brief biographies and photographs, is available on the website. To have a faculty award added to the site, contact Sudeep Sarkar, associate vice president for Research & Innovation, at sarkar@usf.edu.
