Celebrating Distinguished Professors

The title of Distinguished Professor is the highest designation and academic honor that OSU bestows on our faculty. These titles have been awarded annually since 1988 to recognize outstanding active OSU faculty members who have achieved national and/or international stature as a result of their contributions to scholarship/creative activity, research, education, and service, and whose work has been notably influential in their fields of specialization.
