The 2017 Michigan Distinguished Professor of the Year award recipients were joined by academic leaders from their universities at a celebration luncheon on April 21 in Lansing. Each of Michigan's 15 public universities were invited by MASU to nominate a faculty member who has made a significant impact on student learning. The awards program is an initiative of the association's Academic Affairs Officers Committee. The 2017 recipients are Barry Fishman, Professor of Learning Technologies at the University of Michigan; Ann Folino White, Associate Professor of Theatre Studies and Directing at Michigan State University; and David Wood, Professor of English at Northern Michigan University.

The Michigan Distinguished Professor of the Year awards program, now in its 11th year, recognizes the outstanding contributions and dedication exhibited by the faculty from Michigan's 15 public universities. Award criteria include impact on and involvement with undergraduate students; individualized and experiential learning; scholarship and innovation in teaching and learning; and contributions to undergraduate education at the institution, in the community and in the profession/discipline.
