An appointment to a distinguished professorship is one of the highest faculty honors the University can bestow. Recognized faculty have shown distinction and leadership in their field of study or across disciplines.

Distinguished awards provide recipients with research funds along with an honorary title. Funding may be provided either until retirement or for a fixed period depending on the funding source.

Conferral of this honor requires approval by the Faculty Council’s Appointment, Promotion and Tenure Committee and the University’s Board of Trustees.
