University Professorship Recipients

Texas A&M University’s Office of the Provost has announced it will recognize four faculty members as holders of University Professorships. Created as a new distinction in 2019, University Professorships recognize faculty who have demonstrated significant and sustained accomplishments in their discipline, earning them national and international recognition. The award also highlights the recipients’ commitment to inclusivity, accountability, climate, and equity in their departments, colleges, and throughout their service at Texas A&M.

Recipients receive an annual stipend for three years, and as faculty members in good standing they retain the title of University Professorship throughout their career at the university. Nominations for the distinction were submitted by department heads or deans, and the finalists were selected by a university committee and approved by the Provost.
