Daniel J. Flannery, the Semi J. and Ruth Begun Professor and director of the Begun Center for Violence Prevention Research and Education, has been named a Distinguished University Professor of Case Western Reserve University.

This designation represents the highest honor the university will bestow on a member of its professoriate and acknowledges the significant national contributions Dr. Flannery has made in research and service.

One nominator commented that he “ one of the most consequential social scientists in the country. Every feature of his academic record… is superlative." This title elevates the impactful work that is being done across the Mandel School.

Dr. Flannery joins the ranks of Mandel School emeritus professors Claudia J. Coulton, the Lillian F. Harris Professor Emerita of Urban Research and Social Change, and M.C. “Terry” Hokenstad, Jr., the Ralph S. and Dorothy P. Schmitt Professor Emeritus, who also held Distinguished University Professor titles.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Flannery on this major accomplishment and celebrating him at the Fall 2023 convocation ceremony.
