Benedict Distinguished Visiting Professors
BENEDICT DISTINGUISHED VISITING PROFESSORS
Carleton has an endowment fund to support Benedict Distinguished Visiting Professors each year. Nominations may come from any department, concentration, or program at the College. Please include a curriculum vitae, if possible, and send nominations to the Dean of the College. Please note that these funds have already been used for the 2012-13 academic year.
Nominees for Benedict Distinguished Visiting Professors should be scholars of distinction who could enrich our teaching programs and stimulate their Carleton faculty colleagues. Appointments normally are for one term, although other appointments might be considered under extraordinary circumstances. It is very desirable to invite Benedicts who will serve as leave replacements, but there is no requirement that limits a Benedict appointment to such circumstances.
Recruiting for a Benedict appointment should take place early in the academic year for the subsequent one or two academic years. Experience has shown that people of the caliber we seek must be engaged well in advance of the time we wish them to come to Carleton.
