Re: Announcing the Appointment of the 2020 University Professors (PDAD&C #78)

I am pleased to announce that the Academic Board of Governing Council has approved the appointment of two University Professors for 2020. The University of Toronto owes much of its reputation for excellence to its world-class professors, and I am delighted to have the opportunity to formally acknowledge the outstanding achievements of some of our finest faculty members. The title “University Professor” is the University’s highest and most distinguished academic rank.

The newest members of this exceptional group are as follows:

  • University Professor Jutta Brunnée, Faculty of Law
  • University Professor Marie-Josée Fortin, Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, 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, as well as all the nominators who prepared dossiers for submission. I would also like to thank the University of Toronto Libraries for their thoughtful support in this process.
