This award honors full professor colleagues who have excelled in teaching, service, and research/creative activity, and whose work has demonstrated significant impact on their fields, students, college and university, and/or the public. Because these professorships are reserved for the most distinguished faculty, no more than 10% of the total number of full professors in the College of Arts and Sciences may hold this title at any one time. 


  • Political science graduate student, Victoria Gurevich, and Professor Laura Dugan just had a book proposal accepted by Oxford University Press as part of their Contributions to the Causes, Conduct and Consequences of Terrorism Book Series. It will be an open access edited volume called Far-Right Extremism and Global Challenges: Bridging the Humanities and Social Sciences to Preserve Democracies. The chapters will come from the presenters and respondents from last fall's symposium called, "The Far-Right: Examining its Roots and Challenging its Reach.”
