Provost’s Distinguished Associate Professor
Each year since 2016, deans, departments, and similar units nominate deserving colleagues as Provost Distinguished Associate Professors. A committee of distinguished senior faculty including university professors and endowed chair holders (chaired by Chandan Vaidya, Vice Provost for Faculty) reviews the applicants.
Georgetown uses the designation to honor Associate Professors who are performing at extraordinary high levels. These designations are term-limited with a maximum duration of five years, or until promotion to full professor. As indicated below, their work exemplifies what makes Georgetown strong – faculty thoroughly engaged in pushing the envelope of knowledge in their field, and transmitting their passion for such work to their students and the general public.
