University honors Elspeth Rostow

Professor Elspeth Rostow received a Presidential Citation from UT Austin President Ad Interim Peter Flawn during the university's 50th annual Honors Day Program in April.

Designed to recognize individuals whose contributions have brought great distinction to the university and who exemplify the institution's values and traditions, the citation is the highest honor the university's president can bestow on an individual.

Rostow, who is Stiles Professor Emerita in American Studies and Professor of Public Affairs and Government, was dean of the LBJ School from 1977 to 1983. She is widely known for her charismatic speaking and teaching abilities as well as her involvement in public service activities ranging from the U.S. Institute of Peace to The Austin Project.

In May, Rostow will receive a Distinguished Alumna Award from her alma mater, Barnard College.
