UNIVERSITY PROFESSORSHIPS

The University Professorships are designed to honor faculty members who have demonstrated significant and sustained accomplishment in their discipline that has gained recognition both nationally and internationally, and who also excel in teaching and service.  Up to five awardees will be honored each year and receive an award of $5,000 for each of the first three years but not subsequently.

Eligibility: Tenured faculty at the rank of Professor, who do not otherwise have a research‐based professorial title (Distinguished, Regents or endowed professorship or chair) will be eligible for consideration as a University Professor.

Naming: Each recipient may select to name their Professorship after a significant emeritus (or deceased) TAMU faculty member of their choosing with approval by the Dean of Faculties. For example, the Jane Doe University Professor.

Term of Appointment: Each holder of a University Professorship will retain the right to use the title so long as they remain a faculty member in good standing. Failure to meet expectations in an annual review will trigger a formal review following the process established by their college for the review of Endowed Chairs and Professors. The final decision to retain the title or not will be made by the Provost. The bursary will not be repeated beyond the initial 3 years.
