Herrmann Receives University of Alaska Foundation Bullock Prize
The University of Alaska Foundation has selected University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Dr. Mark Herrmann as recipient of the 2019 Edith R. Bullock Prize for Excellence. Herrmann is Dean of UAF’s School of Management and a faculty member for 25-plus years. The Edith R. Bullock Prize for Excellence is the Foundation’s most prestigious award.
Former student Christi Bell, Associate Vice Provost and Executive Director of the University of Alaska Anchorage Business Enterprise Institute, stated in her nomination of Herrmann, “While Dr. Herrmann is a well-established and seasoned leader, he is simultaneously an up-and-coming leader of the UA system. This honor would not only recognize the work that Dr. Herrmann has already accomplished, but simultaneously recognize an entrepreneurial and innovative leader of the UA system at a time when we desperately need more of these types of leaders.”
