(Korevaar, David J - 2019) -- Distinguished Professorship
Distinguished professors are faculty members who demonstrate exemplary performance in research or creative work, a record of excellence in classroom teaching and supervision of individual learning, and outstanding service to the profession, the university and its affiliates. The CU campuses nominate faculty for the award, the highest honor bestowed upon faculty across the system's four campuses. President Mark Kennedy then reviews the nominations and, with the recommendation of the Distinguished Professors Committee, forwards the candadates' names to the Board of Regents.
