Duane C. Wolf

 Duane C. Wolf, University Professor of crop and soil sciences in the Bumpers College. Under Duane Wolf’s leadership as director from 2002 to 2011, the Bumpers College honors program more than quadrupled in size. For 10 years Wolf led the Honors Orientation class for first-year students, and he has also co-taught the Honors Proposal Development class. He has attended nearly all Bumpers College honors thesis defenses and reviewed all honors theses produced during his tenure as director. “Duane Wolf has been both the ‘face’ and the ‘heart’ of the Bumpers honors program for the last decade and is among the most respected faculty in the college,” wrote horticulture professor Curt Rom, who succeeded Wolf as director of the honors program.
