RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Robert Swap of the University of Virginia has been named as the state's professor of the year.
Swap, a research professor of environmental sciences, received the award this week from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advance of Teaching and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education.
