UW-Madison’s Francois Tochon was recently awarded an honorary professorship from Guangdong University of Foreign Studies, a public university located in Guangzhou, China.
Such an award is even more highly regarded than an honorary doctorate and is Tochon’s second honorary professorship, joining his two Ph.D.s and four honorary doctorates.
Tochon is a professor with the School of Education’s No. 1-ranked Department of Curriculum and Instruction, where he leads the World Language Education program. He also has ties to the Department of French and Italian.
