Call for 2024 university distinguished professor nominations
Dear faculty, department heads, division/school directors and deans,
I announce the call for nominations for the title of university distinguished professor for appointment in 2024. This opportunity, coordinated through the provost's office in conjunction with the university distinguished professor group, will consider new appointments to this title for 2024. In addition to this distinguished title, each appointee shall receive an enhancement of $10,000 added to their base salaries with funds provided through the provost's office.
The review of nominations will be conducted by the university distinguished professors group, with additional review and input provided by a group of selected university distinguished professors from other Big 12 universities. The selection of the external Big 12 university distinguished professors will be made by the provost. The provost will use the recommendations of the Big 12 and K-State university distinguished professors, and consult with the Deans Council, to select the 2024 class.
Nominations of outstanding faculty who meet the criteria for the title of university distinguished professor can be made to the provost's office by any tenured Kansas State University faculty member. The PDF files containing the entire nomination package, with original signatures, and a PDF file containing the entire nomination package should be submitted to University Distinguished Professor Nominations at email@example.com by Monday, Oct. 2. Late or incomplete nomination packages will not be considered.
Be sure to use the University Distinguished Professors Nomination PDF Checklist before submitting nominations. Please pay special attention to how to name the PDF submission files.
