This formal title denotes an academic honor of highest distinction and is awarded to a limited number of our most accomplished professors. Nominees should be established scholars, held in the highest esteem by professional colleagues nationally and internationally, whose contributions have had a significant influence on their discipline and perhaps beyond. The title is accompanied by an annual honorarium of $5000 to support the awardee's professional activities. For more information contact the Faculty Affairs Office at (301) 405-6803.
