Eric Hall named to Rawls endowed professorship
Elon leaders announced Monday that Eric Hall, a professor of exercise science, was named the Japheth E. Rawls Professor for Undergraduate Research in Science.
A dedicated teacher and mentor and prolific scholar, Eric Hall has provided many students with high-quality research experiences.
The honor is a rotating two-year professorship that aims to support the efforts of faculty engagement with students in the scholarship of scientific discovery. It is funded through a gift from the estate of Dr. Japheth E. Rawls Jr. ’35 and his wife, Virginia Riddick Rawls and is for a faculty member in the sciences.
Hall has been at Elon since 2000. He works closely with students on undergraduate research and recently published five papers, three of which included undergraduate student co-authors.
Hall serves as Elon’s faculty athletics representatives, a position he has held since 2008. He is also on numerous committees, including the Council on Undergraduate Research and the NCAA Academic Council.
