March 29, 2019

Newest Members Honored for Leadership in Innovation and Groundbreaking Research to Build Academic Excellence within SUNY

Albany – The State University of New York Board of Trustees recently approved the appointments of 18 faculty to the Distinguished Faculty rank. All distinguished faculty in active service with SUNY are also members of the SUNY Distinguished Academy.

"As witnessed by their massive accomplishments and groundbreaking research in their academic areas, each individual is passionate about their field of expertise, and shares that energy with their students," said SUNY Board Chairman H. Carl McCall. "We are pleased to congratulate this most recent class of distinguished faculty."

"The SUNY faculty being honored today with the distinguished ranking are leaders in innovation, research, environmental and cultural studies, and serve as a strong and constant reminder of the quality higher education students receive at our campuses," said SUNY Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson. "On behalf of all our faculty, staff and students, I congratulate these individuals on this honorable distinction."

Since the program’s inception in 1963, SUNY has appointed 1,148 faculty to the distinguished ranks, as follows, including these most recent appointments: 422 Distinguished Professorships; 329 Distinguished Service Professorships; 390 Distinguished Teaching Professorships; and 7 Distinguished Librarian Professorships. More information about SUNY’s faculty award program is available online.

The Distinguished Professorship is conferred upon individuals who have achieved national and/or international prominence and a distinguished reputation within their chosen field. This distinction is attained through extraordinary contributions to, and impact on, the candidate’s field of study, often evidenced by significant research and/or creative activity. Moreover, the candidate should be a role model for students and other faculty and their work must be of such character that it has the potential to elevate the standards of scholarship or creative activity of colleagues both within and beyond their academic fields. Their work must be of such quality that students and scholars on other State University of New York campuses would wish to benefit from lectures and seminars, or other appropriate presentations the faculty members might provide. Further, to be eligible for nomination, a faculty member must have attained and held the rank of full professor for five years, and must have at least one year of full-time service at the nominating institution. Receiving this rank are the following:
