Clark School Professor K. J. Ray Liu has been selected as a 2007-2008 Distinguished Scholar-Teacher by the University of Maryland. The Distinguished Scholar-Teacher program recognizes faculty members who have demonstrated outstanding scholarly achievement along with equally outstanding accomplishments as teachers.

The Scholar-Teachers "[bring] a passion for learning to their colleagues and students, and... serve as models of what a professor at a fine research university should be," Provost William Destler said in a written statement.

Liu, a professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department and the Institute for Systems Research, was one of six Maryland professors to receive this honor. Nominees for the award were selected by their peers, and the six winners were chosen by a panel of former Distinguished Scholar-Teachers.

Winners receive a $5,000 cash award to support instructional and scholarly activities, and make a public presentation in the fall semester on a topic of scholarly interest.
