Distinguished Professor

The Distinguished Professor title is the highest campus-level distinction and is reserved for senior faculty who have achieved the highest levels of scholarship over the course of their careers. Distinguished Professors will typically have earned national and international level distinctions and honors of the highest level.

The Distinguished Professor title is unmodified, consistent with the campus wide selection process where individuals are reviewed for their accomplishments as a whole, without regard to area or subarea of specialization. Faculty who hold a title of distinction can describe their affiliations and/or disciplines in a format such as: Distinguished Professor, Department of X.

The Distinguished Professor title is conferred for a five-year renewable term, subject to review and recommendation of the School Dean to the Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor.
