University Professors

The University Professorship is a University-wide award to honor outstanding faculty scholars whose contributions to the University community might lie outside the system of traditional disciplinary recognition and reward. The title is conferred upon outstanding scholars whose work reflects exceptional breadth and some of whose work is interdisciplinary. Because of this interdisciplinary dimension, the title of “University Professor” carries a somewhat different meaning at NYU than similar titles carry at other universities. Active University Professors are listed below.
