Distinguished Professorships

The University of Miami received an anonymous gift to its Momentum campaign that created five new distinguished professorships to honor outstanding faculty scholars in arts and sciences and architecture.

The new Distinguished Professors are: Dr. Chuck Carver, Distinguished Professor of Psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences; Dr. David Ellison, Distinguished Professor in the Humanities in the College of Arts and Sciences; Dr. Howard Gordon, Distinguished Professor of Physics in the College of Arts and Sciences; Dr. Susan Haack, Distinguished Professor in the Humanities in the College of Arts and Sciences; and Dean Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Distinguished Professor of Architecture. Each professorship will fund research that supports the scholarly work of the faculty member.

In addition to these appointments in arts and sciences and architecture, renowned endocrinologist and Nobel Laureate Dr. Andrew Schally joined the faculty as Miller Distinguished Professor in the Miller School of Medicine. Dr. Schally’s appointment is supported by the generosity of the family of the late Leonard M. Miller.

Dr. James M. Tien and Dr. Camillo Ricordi were honored as distinguished professors in 2007. Dr. Tien is a Distinguished Professor in Engineering and is currently the Dean of the School of Engineering at the University. Dr. Camillo Ricordi is a Distinguished Professor in Medicine and is the Scientific Director and Chief Academic Officer of the Diabetes Research Institute at the Miller School of Medicine.
