Atkins University Professorships
In consideration of Mr. Olin Atkins's desire to support the Olin Atkins University Professorships program, a faculty rewards program designed to help the University retain its best and brightest faculty and to make an investment in the University's people.
- Full and associate tenured professors with ten (10) years of service at the University
of Memphis are eligible for the program.
- Awardees would hold University Professorships for a maximum of three (3) years and
would be ineligible for re-consideration for a minimum of three (3) years following
expiration of initial awards.
- Selection will be based upon the quality of the faculty member's teaching, research,
and service, with a special emphasis on teaching skill.
Professorships are awarded every three (3) years. Our next call for nominations will be Spring 2025 for awards beginning Fall 2025.
