The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has awarded Nathan Gunn with the Swanlund Endowed Chair, the highest honor the university can bestow upon its faculty.

An alumnus of the University, Nathan is currently a professor of voice and the General Director of the Lyric Theatre @ Illinois. The Swanlund Endowed Chair honors Nathan for his dedication to the University and for his exceptional contributions to the fields of classical music and the performing arts.

The award is made possible by a generous gift from alumna Maybelle Leland Swanlund, whose endowment to the University exists to attract world-class leaders in the arts and sciences to the University of Illinois.
