College of Arts and Sciences CAS Awards and Honors

Faculty of Distinction

Distinguished professorships honor premier faculty.

Awards are made possible through the generosity of individual donors and private organizations that believe deeply in our mission of discovery, and in the lifelong impact a gifted professor or researcher can have on future generations.

Honorary titles provide recognition and the endowed funds provide outstanding and promising faculty with additional resources to pursue additional scholarly, research, and creative activities.
