Each academic year, starting in 2016-17, the university makes available to the colleges 250 Term Professorships.

The Provost’s Office apportions University Term Professorships to the colleges according to the number of eligible faculty in the college. In selecting awardees, faculty advisory committees and/or department or school chairs/directors should provide input, and the dean makes the final determination
Holders of the award may add “University Term Professor” to their academic titles for the duration of the award.
