Re: Announcing the Appointment of the 2017 University Professors  (PDAD&C #106)

I am pleased to announce that the Academic Board approved the appointment of four University Professors for 2017. The University of Toronto owes much of its reputation to the excellence of its professoriate. I am delighted to have the opportunity to formally acknowledge the outstanding achievements of our finest faculty members who have been granted the University’s most distinguished rank – “University Professor”. The newest members of this exceptional group are as follows:


University Professor Brenda Andrews

Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research, Faculty of Medicine





University Professor Mary Gospodarowicz

Department of Radiation Oncology, Faculty of Medicine





University Professor Cheryl Misak

Department of Philosophy, Faculty of Arts & Science





University Professor Morris Moscovitch

Department of Psychology, Faculty of Arts & Science





The biographies of the University Professors are available online.

I would like to thank the members of the Selection Committee for all their work in reviewing the candidate packages, and all of the nominators who prepared dossiers for submission. I would also like to thank the U of T Libraries for their thoughtful support in this process.
