Moores Professorships Deadline Approaching January 26, 2015

Dear Faculty:

The deadline for submitting nominations for the John & Rebecca Moores Professorship is February 6, 2015.

The Moores Professor’s Program was established to honor full-time tenured faculty who have achieved the rank of full professor at the University of Houston and who have made outstanding contributions in

  • research, scholarship, and/or creative activities;
  • teaching or mentoring at the undergraduate and/or graduate level;
  • service on a local, national, or international level.

Each Moores Professor will receive an annual stipend of discretionary funds. The position will be awarded for a period of five years with the possibility of renewal. It is anticipated that two Professors will be selected during Spring 2015, with an annual stipend of $10,000. Faculty members at the University of Houston may hold only one distinguished or named chair or professorship.

I encourage you to learn more about the specific award information and criteria for the John & Rebecca Moores Professors online and apply by the February 6, 2015 deadline.

I look forward to receiving your nominations.
