Purpose

Professors Selection Committee. The title, Distinguished Professor, is conferred on academic staff members
who have demonstrated outstanding distinction in research, scholarship, creative endeavours, professional
service and teaching.
Eligibility
All active members of the academic staff of the University of Manitoba holding full-time appointments are eligible
for nomination. Up to three people may receive the honour each year, and not more than twenty-five professors
may hold the title at one time.
Criteria
The following general criteria are used as a basis for evaluating nominations:
a) outstanding distinction in research or scholarship or, for nominations from units such as Fine Arts
and Music, in creative professional activity;
b) a significant record in teaching;
c) some indication of the Nominee’s standing in his/her field, not only from a national perspective
but also from an international perspective.
Process
The Distinguished Professors Selection Committee considers nominations, letters of support, and evaluations
from referees, and makes recommendations to the Board of Governors on appropriate candidates for the title.
The committee is comprised of five members representing the health sciences, humanities, natural sciences,
and social sciences, plus a distinguished scholar from any discipline, and is chaired by the President.

Citations
The citation is a statement of the significance of the candidates work as prepared by one of the nominators. It
is intended to state very briefly why a candidate should be elected, and is essentially a summary of the
nomination. The citation should establish that the candidate has achieved such distinction as described in the
relevant policies. Those preparing citations are asked to respect the limitation of length of 200 words. The
citation should concentrate on the candidates original contributions to research and scholarship and service.
The citation should be as readable as possible while sufficiently detailed in content to allow those considering
the nominations to make a confident assessment of the candidates work for voting purposes. When a candidate
is selected by the Distinguished Professors Selection Committee, the citation is the only document that will be
circulated to the Board of Governors to assist in the voting. If a nominee is approved, the citation may be used
to inform and assist in the preparation of an official citation for all related publications. The citation is therefore
an important document which should be carefully written and should contain as much useful information as
possible.
