Hixson-Lied Professorships

The Hixson-Lied Professorship program recognizes the work of our most outstanding faculty. Eligibility for consideration of these professorships is limited to tenured faculty at the rank of Associate or Full Professor who do not already hold a named professorship, who have demonstrated exceptional overall performance over an extended time frame, and whose accomplishments have gained significant recognition beyond the University.

Hixson-Lied Professorships are awarded for a three-year term and can be re-nominated for a second, consecutive three-year term. These professorships carry a $3,000 annual stipend that can be used to augment the recipient's salary or to support the recipient's creative or scholarly work.
