New Mexico State University Regents Professor Jim Peach was selected to fill the Chevron Endowed Professorship in the College of Business.
Peach, a professor in the Department of Economics, Applied Statistics and International Business, will serve as the inaugural Chevron Endowed Professor for three years beginning fall 2017, and plans to further his energy research in a way that could have an international impact.
“There are not many things like this professorship available. The opportunity will allow me to further my energy research, hire a graduate student and attend valuable conferences,” said Peach, who has been a professor at NMSU since 1980.
