The Special Appointments Committee of the University Senate welcomes nominations and applications for the title of Distinguished University Professor.
Intended to recognize faculty at the rank of professor who have distinguished achievements in teaching and an international reputation for scholarship or creative or professional accomplishment, the title has been conferred on 41 individuals since its inception in 1986.
An application for an eligible candidate must be submitted to Senate governance officer Danny Anger in the University Secretariat by Nov. 2. Criteria and process can be found here.
The title “professor emeritus” is now granted automatically. Those faculty or librarians who did not receive automatic emeritus status on retirement because they did not meet the minimum required years of continuous service but do fulfill the other criteria may submit an application to the Special Appointments Committee for consideration.
For additional information, contact Anger by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
