selection process

A five member, ad hoc committee of distinguished faculty reviews all nominations and makes recommendations to the provost and president.

During the first two selection years, the committee will be comprised of current Distinguished University Professors and distinguished emeriti faculty selected by the provost and deans. Beginning in selection year three, the committee will be comprised entirely of Distinguished University Professors, again appointed by the provost and deans.

In all cases, the president makes the final award and appointment with approval from the Board of Trustees.
