UC Riverside leads the country with the highest number of 2002 AAAS Fellows

RIVERSIDE, Calif. - For their work of scientific or social distinction, 13 faculty members at University of California, Riverside were named as 2002 Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the highest number of fellows a single institution has received this year. Thirteen fellows is also the new record for UC Riverside; the university's previous record was 12 AAAS Fellows in 1997.

The AAAS, founded in 1848, is the world's largest, general scientific organization. It represents more than 138,000 members and 275 affiliated societies in the world, and conducts programs in science policy, education and international scientific cooperation. It publishes the prestigious peer-reviewed journal Science. Nomination for the AAAS Fellowship is considered a high honor and begun in 1874.

A total of 291 scientists in the world became AAAS Fellows this year. In 2001, UC Riverside employed 593 full-time-equivalent professors. With this year's 13 fellows, a total of 102 UC Riverside faculty are now elected to AAAS fellowship or 17.2% of the faculty.

"I am delighted that UC Riverside professors received such well-deserved international recognition in a respected peer review," said UC Riverside Chancellor France Cordova. "Our goal is to bring together research and teaching excellence for our students and our state."

Richard Luben, UC Riverside's interim vice chancellor for research, said, "We're very pleased that the excellence of UC Riverside's scientists continues to be recognized by their national peers. This is a tremendously strong group of fellows, a group that reflects the strengths of the UC Riverside basic research enterprise."

This is the eighth year in a row that UC Riverside has been in first or second position with the greatest number of new AAAS Fellows. Among the UC campuses, UC Berkeley ranked next this year with six AAAS Fellows.
