Professors play a crucial role in the development of university education and research. Together with their team, they are responsible for building and expanding a line of research and everything around it.

There are different types of professorships. In the memorandum entitled 'Hoofdlijnen Hooglerarenbeleid' (Main lines of professorship policy, pdf) you will find the starting points for our professorship policy.

Who are our professors?

Distinguished University professors are appointed by the Executive Board for their cross-disciplinary vision and charisma.

Professors by Special appointment are appointed by an external body to a special chair with the approval of the Executive Board.

Our professors from the foundation in 1636 until today are collected in the catalogue professorum.

Are you (emeritus) professor?

The Utrecht Society of Professors, Emeriti and Partners (PEP) is a university-wide association in which professors, emeriti and their respective partners can meet each other, even outside their own institutes and faculties.
