In 1947 the Regents established the Distinguished University Professorships, the University’s most prestigious professorships, to recognize senior faculty with exceptional scholarly and/or creative achievements, national and international reputations for academic excellence, and superior records of teaching, mentoring, and service. Faculty selected for this recognition, in consultation with the dean of the school or college in which he or she holds an appointment, name the Professorship after a person of distinction in his or her general field of interest, preferably a person formerly associated with the University.

This year's DUP lectures will include John Z. Ayanian, Earl Lewis, and Janet L. Smith.

This event will take place in the Michigan League, and will be streamed live on YouTube here:
