The appointee shall have attained regional and national prominence and, when appropriate, international recognition of outstanding achievement. Additionally, the appointee shall have demonstrated superior teaching ability appropriate to assigned responsibilities.

Appointees will hold the rank of Professor but, while having the stature, will not have rights that are limited to tenured faculty.
