He is an Edward M. Gramlich Distinguished University Professor of Economics and Public Policy. He also is an Arthur F. Thurnau Professor, Harold T.

Ford School of Public Policy; professor of economics, LSA; professor of information, School of Information; adjunct professor of law, Law School; and faculty associate, Institute for Social Research.

Recently appointed Distinguished University Professors are invited to give an inaugural lecture.

Distinguished University Professorships, established in 1947, recognize senior faculty with exceptional scholarly or creative achievements, national and international reputations for academic excellence and superior records of teaching, mentoring and service.

Each professorship bears a name determined by the appointive professor in consultation with his or her dean.
