Distinguished MAINE Professor

Sponsored by the classes of 1942 and 2002, the Distinguished Maine Professor Award honors those professors who exemplify the highest qualities of teaching, research, and public service – in that order.  Accompanying the award is a $4,200 prize, a distinctive blazer, and a pewter medallion, all generously funded by the Class of 1942.

 

Nomination Procedure: Each spring semester, the dean of each college shall appoint and convene a DMP Student/Faculty Nominating Committee for the purpose of nominating candidates for consideration by the DMP Selection Committee.
