Distinguished Professors

NC State is home to more than 2,500 outstanding faculty, each guided by an extraordinary purpose. Across disciplines, they inspire students to think creatively and critically, serve as mentors, fuel the evolution of their fields of study through graduate student support and undertake vital research that benefits our community, state and world. Distinguished professorships are one of the most valuable ways NC State can honor such remarkable contributions. Private support has helped us increase our distinguished professorships — and our impact.
