Nominations sought for Regents’ professor

Provost Liz Grobsmith is inviting nominations of tenured professors from all NAU campuses and disciplines for Regents’ professor.

The current nomination process and forms can be found on the provost’s website. Nominations are due no later than Monday, Aug. 29.

Any tenured or tenure-track faculty member may nominate a qualified individual by submitting a completed nomination form and the nominee’s curriculum vitae. Self-nominations are not accepted.

Appointment as a Regents’ professor is one of the highest honors that the university bestows on its faculty. The title is reserved for faculty with exceptional achievements that have brought them national and/or international distinction and whose work is of superior quality according to standards set by leading scholars in the field.

Nominees must also be teachers of exceptional ability who have interests and accomplishments extending beyond a particular specialty.

Regents’ professors are expected to serve as advisers to the president and provost, as well as to be available for activities throughout the university system.
