University Distinguished Professor Program

Nomination Process

Nomination Process

The nomination process for candidates for the title of University Distinguished Professor will be overseen by the Office of the Provost and the Faculty Senate.  Faculty members should have a minimum of ten years at the University of Vermont before becoming eligible for nomination.  Nominations are solicited from the Deans, Chairs and full-time faculty of our University.

Nominations are to be submitted electronically by the nominator or designee as a single PDF document, by March 1, 2014 to and will be forwarded to the Faculty Senate Research, Scholarship, & The Creative Arts Committee.

Please include;

  • the curriculum vitae for the nominee,
  • a letter noting the qualifications of the individual for this distinguished title, and
  • supporting letters from two external references. The external letters should address the candidate’s international reputation and do not have to be “arm’s length.”

Nominations will remain active for a period of three years.  If they so choose, nominators may update their submission materials in years two and three. If a nominator elects to re-activate a nomination packet submitted within the past 3 years, a statement regarding the basis for re-nomination should be included.

The Faculty Senate Research, Scholarship, & The Creative Arts Committee will submit a list of finalists to the Provost.
