The Society of Foundation Professors

In 1987 the Eastern Kentucky University Foundation established a program to recognize "creative, self-motivated exemplars of the ideal college professor." All full-time tenured faculty are eligible for the two-year professorship which comes with an extra salary stipend of $5,000 a year. The selection is based on the University's standard criteria for promotion, tenure and merit. Selection currently is made by a committee composed of members of the Society of Foundation Professors.
