Duke Policies

Creation of Eponymous Professorships

The University began to allow in 1981 the creation of the named professorship to honor persons in Duke's past and to "recognize, attract and retain teachers and scholars of distinction." Eponyms are intentionally limited in number; therefore, new requests myst be approved by the Board of Trustees.
