Oklahoma State University celebrated excellence by recognizing the achievements of faculty, staff and administrators at the University Awards Convocation Tuesday at the OSU ConocoPhillips Alumni Center in Stillwater.

The Eminent Faculty Award, which recognizes the highest level of scholarly achievement at OSU, was presented to Wade Brorsen, Regents Professor of Agricultural Economics in the Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. Brorsen has made outstanding contributions to the field of agricultural economics through his research program, award-winning teaching and professional service as an editor of two of the profession’s top journals.

 

“Dr. Brorsen has been a leader in agricultural price analysis for more than 30 years and has made innovative and path-breaking contributions in a number of areas, including price discovery in commodity markets, efficiency of commodity markets, the impact of risk and the marketing behaviors of farmers,” said Dr. Gary Sandefur, OSU provost and senior vice president.

 

Earlier this year, Brorsen was named a fellow by the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association, an honor bestowed on less than one percent of the association’s membership.
