This guide features an exhibit mounted in 2000 highlighting significant achievements in selected academic areas. Deans of each college submitted noteworthy areas of excellence.

High Angular Resolution Astronomy

One of the most exciting efforts of the Center for High Angular Resolution Astronomy, headed by Dr. Harold McAlister, is its proposal for building a telescope that will resolve detail more accurately than any currently available. The design for the instrument uses a technology called long-baseline optical interferometry. Major funding for the $10 million facility is expected from the National Science Foundation.
