NEH Distinguished Teaching Professorships

Between 1995 and 2017, the CTE joined the College of Arts and Sciences in sponsoring three UVA Distinguished Teaching Professorships, funded through a special endowment originating from a National Endowment for the Humanities Special Challenge Grant. Beginning in the 2017-2018 academic year, the program has moved fully into the College of Arts and Sciences. This program continues to aim to fulfill these objectives:

  • Support and reward humanities faculty who actively analyze the impact of their teaching on students’ learning
  • Encourage and support outstanding humanities faculty in developing projects to share knowledge and expertise
  • Recognize both teaching and research as valid aspects of scholarship
  • Reward proven excellence in teaching

This cycle’s application materials can be found on the Arts and Sciences website. For more information, please contact Francesca Fiorani, Associate Dean for the Arts and Humanities.
