Foundation Professors Plaque (Crabbe Library)

Exhibit Home

(Above) Foundation Professors Plaque. Located next to the Reference Desk in the Crabbe Library.

What makes a truly great professor? We’ve all had classes with instructors who inspire us to do better and who go above and beyond our expectations. In 1987, the University Foundation sought to reward those truly remarkable professors and created Foundation Professorships. Professors awarded this two-year special professorship are given a stipend and are honored with their name on this plaque. These professors are "creative, self-motivated exemplars of the ideal college professor."

To view the plaque dedicated to Foundation Professors, enter the Crabbe Library through the Little Addition and the plaque will be on the left side next to the Main Desk.
