To honor exceptional faculty, Case Western Reserve University awards the title of Distinguished University Professor—a permanent, honorific title that acknowledges the outstanding contributions of full-time, tenured professors with a distinguished academic record of extraordinary research, scholarship, teaching and service.
The designation represents the highest honor the university bestows on a member of its professoriate, and it will be granted to no more than 3 percent of the university's tenured faculty.
Recipients receive a medallion at fall convocation commemorating the honor. Distinguished University Professors also receive financial support for academic work, a permanent increase in annual salary and membership on the President's Distinguished University Professor Advisory Council.
