ATMO professor Xubin Zeng has been named an Agnese Nelms Haury Faculty Chair. The highest of honors afforded by the new Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice at the University of Arizona, Chair recognition is given to distinguished faculty working on pressing issues in the areas of environmental change, culture studies, social justice, the Southwest, indigenous peoples, and human rights.

Agnese Nelms Haury cared deeply about people and their connections to environment and place, especially in the Southwest. She also cherished international cooperation and social justice; appreciated the unparalleled importance of fieldwork to better understand landscapes and cultures; and admired researchers skilled in communicating their research to the public.

Professor Zeng's dynamic visionary work as a scholar and teacher align beautifully with the things she valued, and is precisely what the Chair program in her name is intended to support.
