Regents' Professor Appointments

Current Nomination Deadline: Spring 2017

Regents' Professor is a special title bestowed on selected senior faculty members who, in the judgment of the Dean and on the advice of a faculty selection committee, merit recognition of their accomplishments as teachers, scholars and leaders both in University affairs and in their national/international professional communities. These appointments will be made to full professors for terms of three years. In addition to the title Regents' Professor, the appointment also carries a stipend.

A complete nomination consists of the candidate's curriculum vitae and a letter of nomination from the candidate's Department Chair indicating the candidate's qualifications and the extent of departmental faculty support for the nomination. An advisory committee on selection will be formed and will review applications received in order to recommend appointees to the Dean.

Once bestowed, the title Regents' Professor may be retained during the balance of an appointee's affiliation with the University of New Mexico.

Department Chairs will be notified of submission deadlines for Regents' Professor nominations by the Associate Dean For Faculty.

Distinguished Professor Nominations

Initial Deadline: TBD

The Associate Provost for Faculty Development solicits nominations for the rank of Distinguished Professor each October.

The Faculty Handbook, Section B, 2.2.5, defines Distinguished Professors as “individuals who have demonstrated outstanding achievements and are nationally and internationally renowned as scholars". This is the highest faculty title the University bestows and is used only for a few of its most prominent faculty members.

The initial nomination file will consist of the candidate's curriculum vitae, a detailed nomination form, and the Chair or Director's letter of nomination. Once the Dean's letter of endorsement has been received, the Chair or Director will solicit a minimum of eight letters from distinguished external reviewers to include in the final file, which will then be sent to the Associate Provost. The call for nominations, and the final deadline for submission of completed files, will be communicated to all main campus faculty by the office of the Provost.

More information on the procedures can be found in the call for nominations.
