Cornell faculty members have until Monday, Nov. 27, to submit nominations of distinguished scholars in the areas of arts, life sciences, and social sciences for the A.D. White Professors-at-Large Program. The program particularly encourages the nomination of women and minority candidates. Nominations of individuals who bridge traditional disciplinary categories also are encouraged.
A.D. White Professors-at-Large are appointed to six-year terms as nonresident visiting professors at Cornell. During their tenure, A.D. White Professors-at-Large complete two 5-to-7-day visits to campus interacting with faculty, students, and members of the community through public lectures, informal meetings, and various other events. These interactions are the hallmark of the program and serve to foster engaged conversations and meaningful experiences among all audiences.
This fall, the program welcomed two new members to the cohort, bringing to 19 the total number of active A.D. White Professors-at-Large.
The A.D. White Professors-at-Large Program has been called one of the truly imaginative projects in American universities, bringing a steady stream of the world’s foremost scholars, thinkers, and artists to campus, to engage with the Cornell community in multiple forums under a single mandate – “to enliven the intellectual and cultural life of the university.”
Pre-proposals are due on or before Nov. 27 and may be submitted online at the program’s website.
