Harry “Hap” McSween, Chancellor’s Professor and Distinguished Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences, was featured in an article by the Southeastern Conference (SEC). McSween will be recognized today at the Southeastern Conference Spring Meetings in Destin, Florida, as the 2013 SEC Professor of the Year.
In its second year of existence, the SEC Professor of the Year Award goes to one SEC faculty member whose record in research and scholarship places him or her among the elite in higher education.
McSween, who has won a number of national and international awards, is arguably the world’s foremost expert on the composition of Mars and has long been funded by NASA for research on meteorites. His influence is so renowned that he even has an asteroid – 5223 McSween – named in his honor by the International Astronomical Union.
