Carnegie Professors: The Best of the Best

Photographer :: Josh J. Russell

Stories :: Brooke Nelson

One of them keeps a tricycle in his office. Another rescues cats by the dozen. Still another used to shoot rockets into the northern lights of Norway. What they have in common, besides an uncanny ability to teach, is the title Carnegie Professor. Seven people at Utah State University have earned this distinguished, national teaching award, named for the 19th century industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. The entire state gets only one per year. Seven of the last nine have come from USU.

Eat your hearts out, Utes and Cougars.
