Curators' Distinguished Professors

Curators’ Distinguished Professor and Curators’ Distinguished Teaching Professor are the highest faculty ranks in the UM system. These positions are equivalent to titles such as Regents’, University, or Distinguished Professor on other campuses. Any CDP or CDTP should be willing to offer advice or mentoring to early-career faculty.

These are prestigious positions, and only outstanding scholars with established reputations are considered. Each Curators’ Distinguished Professor or Curator's Distinguished Teaching Professor is a resource for the entire University system and should be expected to contribute to the entire University through such activities as giving lectures on other campuses and engaging in teaching and research across divisional lines.

New Faculty Resources

Scholars' Mine/SelectedWorks Profiles

SelectedWorks author profiles, which promote, share and preserve faculty research, are available to Missouri S&T faculty who have content in the institutional respository known as Scholars' Mine. Faculty can build an online research profile and make research easily available to others.

The profiles highlight faculty expertise and publication and have an About page that can contain information on career, education, honors, etc. This can also be linked to other pages, such as a personal page or a research center. Profiles and publications in Scholars' Mine give another avenue of discovery of research and ensure that results are optimized in searches.

An author dashboard provides readership information about full-text publications with various metrics.

Faculty can include buttons for "media contact," "collaborator" and "mentor" on their pages. The pages developed belong to the faculty member and can be taken with them if they leave the institution.

Library staff are available to create a SelectedWorks profile for faculty. To begin the process, please contact

Go here to see the SelectedWorks Author Gallery of S&T instructors.
