Regents’ Professor Appointments

Current Nomination Deadline: Spring 2018

Regents’ Professor is a special title bestowed on selected senior faculty members who, in the judgment of the Dean and on the advice of a faculty selection committee, merit recognition of their accomplishments as teachers, scholars and leaders both in University affairs and in their national/international professional communities. These appointments will be made to full professors for terms of three years. In addition to the title "Regents’ Professor" the appointment also carries a stipend.

A complete nomination consists of the candidate's curriculum vitae, a statement describing their research and scholarship, a teaching portfolio, and a letter of nomination from the candidate's home department chair. The Chair's letter should outline the candidate's qualifications in all areas (teaching, research/scholarship and leadership) and the extent of faculty support within the department. A selection advisory committee will be formed to review nominations and recommend appointees to the Dean.

Once bestowed, the title "Regents’ Professor" may be retained during the balance of an appointee’s affiliation with the University of New Mexico.

The Associate Dean for Faculty will send a call for nominations, with details and deadlines, to all Department Chairs every three years.
