Distinguished and Named Professorship Ceremony honors faculty, administrators
The eighth annual Distinguished and Named Professorship Ceremony on Monday (Nov. 13) celebrated midcareer, distinguished, and named professors and administrators at Purdue for their accomplishments and successes.
Patrick Wolfe, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs and diversity, led the ceremony, presenting plaques and medallions to faculty who received Rising Star recognition, an administrative appointment, or a named or distinguished professorship over the past year.
“These achievements are what make Purdue a leading scholarly institution,” Wolfe said. “The efforts of those honored as extraordinary scholars, teachers and mentors help us achieve the excellence at scale of which we are so rightfully proud.”
President Mung Chiang gave remarks on the value and importance of named and distinguished professorships to honor the achievements of faculty, furthering the university’s commitment to excellence and attracting additional high-performing faculty to Purdue.
“Recruiting, retaining and rewarding top faculty is the most fundamental task for a university like Purdue,” Chiang said. “I work each day to serve outstanding faculty colleagues like those recognized at our annual Distinguished and Named Professorship Ceremony that give rise to excellence at scale.”
