                           Mark Jacobs is the Emeritus Dean of Barrett, The Honors College at Arizona State University,
                           and an Emeritus Professor in the School of Life Sciences,  having served in each position for the last 20 years.
                           He received a B.A. magna cum laude in Biology from Harvard University, a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from
                           Stanford University, and held a NATO Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Freiburg in Germany.
                           For 28 years, he served on the faculty and  in the administration of Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania.
                           A Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, Jacobs is the author of more than 50 publications on the physiological
                           and molecular control of plant development. He has been a visiting professor at the University of Pennsylvania,
                           Cambridge University, the University of California Santa Cruz and Universitat Freiburg in Germany,
                           where he held a NATO postdoctoral fellowship.
                                  At Arizona State University, Dr. Jacobs worked to build the Barrett Honors College into a new definition
                            of an American Honors College. That involved recruiting better students, continuing to recruit top faculty,
                            raising more funds in support of programs and scholarships, and increasing the number of honors courses
                            available to ASU honors students. The work included the opening in 2009 of a new $140 million,
                            1,700-bed honors college campus in Tempe.
