Kevin Knudson, Director, University Honors Program

The University Honors Program solicits nominations for the Elizabeth Wood Dunlevie Honors Term Professorships. Candidates must be among the university’s most esteemed faculty. The Professorships will be for a period of one academic year (2014-15), and Professors will each be responsible for teaching one course for the Honors Program in either the Fall 2014 or Spring 2015 semester on a topic of their choosing. The course is to be a part of each professor’s regular teaching assignment for the term; that is, it is not to be taught as an overload. Additionally, the Dunlevie Professors will be encouraged to participate in collaborative research and outreach functions with Honors students.

As compensation, the faculty members selected as Dunlevie Professors will receive $5,000 in summer salary in 2014.  Additionally, the professor’s home department will receive a payment of $2,000 and will be allowed to keep the course SCH (that is, the course will be listed in the home department but will be designated as Honors). All funds are provided via the Dunlevie Endowment. The Honors Program intends to name as many as four Dunlevie Professors for the 2014-15 academic year.

Eligibility:  Nominees must be tenured regular faculty at UF. Departments are encouraged to nominate their most distinguished professors for this award.

Nomination Procedure:  Department chairs may nominate one faculty member from their department. The packet must include

1.  A letter of nomination from the chair, outlining the faculty member’s qualifications for and interest in the Professorship. This letter must also indicate the title and brief description of the proposed course to be taught.

2.  A current curriculum vitae of the nominee.

Nominations should be sent via e-mail attachment to Dr. Kevin Knudson at Please use the subject “Dunlevie nomination” when submitting. All documents must be received by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 31, 2014. Questions may be directed to Dr. Knudson via e-mail or by calling 392-1519.
