Administrators at the University of San Francisco have created an
honorific designation intended to commend faculty who have made
exceptional contributions to realizing the university’s core values.
University Professor title is meant to recognize full-time faculty
members who have demonstrated an ongoing and outstanding dedication to
fulfilling USF’s vision and mission of promoting learning in the Jesuit
Catholic tradition through diversity, social responsibility, and
academic rigor in their teaching, research, and service. The honorific
designation, to be granted infrequently, is not part of USF’s
negotiated faculty title and pay scale.
“While it is expected
that all faculty contribute to USF’s vision, mission, and values, the
designation will honor faculty with a record of sustained and noted
excellence in the areas of teaching, research, and service,” said USF
Provost James Wiser.
USF’s president will name University
Professor honorees, following a review of nominations by USF’s academic
deans. Nominations may come from any source.
