Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Director of Bath’s Centre for Death & Society, Dr John Troyer was selected as an Alumnus of Notable Achievement (ANA) in the College of Liberal Arts at the University of Minnesota for 2018.
The ANA programme celebrates College of Liberal Arts alumni for their accomplishments and examples of leadership, both in their careers and community service. Since its start in 1994, only 1% of the College’s 157,000 alumni have received this honour. This distinguished award comes in recognition of John’s career as a globally recognised scholar on death, dying, and end-of-life issues and his leadership of the University of Bath’s Centre for Death & Society.
Dr John Troyer said: "It's a great honour to be recognised by the University of Minnesota for my work in death and dying as well as at the University of Bath. I am a second generation Minnesota alumnus (both my parents received their degrees there), so the entire Troyer family is pleased with this achievement."
John and his family will attend the College of Liberal Arts Outstanding Alumni Awards dinner in June where he will officially be presented his award.
