Distinguished University Professors

The Distinguished University Professor appointment was created in 2013 to recognize professors who have records of exemplary scholarship in their respective fields of study, and whose research and teaching trajectories demonstrate a commitment to sustained high levels of academic achievement. The appointments have the potential to serve as steppingstones to future appointments as Regents’ Professors, the highest academic appointment in the University System of Georgia.
