Distinguished, Named University, and Named Professors

As part of the University's commitment to excellence in discovery, learning and engagement, we award distinguished and named professorships to outstandingly original, creative and productive faculty whose achievements in discovery and learning have been internationally recognized or who have made a unique contribution to the University through discovery, learning and/or engagement. These positions may include discretionary allocations for scholarship and teaching, and in some cases salary supplements.

For explanations of the criteria and nomination procedures, see the university policy on Distinguished and Named professorships and Faculty Scholars, and the Provost's supplementary policy.
