2012 Meigs Professors

Wednesday, March 7, 2012 - 9:28am


Two of the four University of Georgia faculty named Josiah Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professors for 2012 are in the Franklin College. The Meigs Awards are the university's highest recognition for superior instruction at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

The 2012 Meigs Professors are:

• Jeffrey Berejikian, associate professor and director of graduate studies in the department of international affairs in the School of Public and International Affairs;

• William Finlay, professor and department head in sociology in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences;

• Jean Martin-Williams, professor of horn in the Hugh Hodgson School of Music in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and director of the Lilly Teaching Fellows program at UGA; and,

• James Moore, Distinguished Research Professor in the department of large animal medicine in the College of Veterinary Medicine.

The announcement was made by Jere Morehead, senior vice president for academic affairs and provost, whose office administers the Meigs program. Morehead is himself a Meigs Professor, having received the award in 2001. The professorships are named for the man who in 1801 became the second president-and sole professor-of Georgia's fledgling state university.


Congratulations to all these faculty members and thank you to Dr. Martin-Williams and Dr. Finlay for continuing to distinguish Franklin College with their excellence and committment to students.
