Boult named CU Distinguished Professor

Terry Boult, the founder of the world’s first and only Bachelor of Innovation degree and a pioneer in multiple research fields, has been named one of two of the newest distinguished professors from UCCS. The CU Board of Regents will recognize Boult and 11 others during its February 2021 meeting with the highest honor that the university bestows to faculty members.

“All of my accomplishments, from the Bachelor of Innovation, to my research papers and funding, to my work in the computer vision foundation and IEEE, have been accomplished through team effort,” Boult said. “Professors are not distinguished by that they do themselves, but by what they help their students and colleagues do. Thus I am honored to be named a distinguished professor for the work done with my many students and collaborators over the years.”

Boult arrived at UCCS as the El Pomar Endowed Chair of Innovation and Security in 2003, arriving on a campus with the goal of excelling in both research and teaching.
