At Harvard University, the title of University Professor is an honor bestowed upon a very small number of its tenured faculty members whose scholarship and other professional work have attained particular distinction and influence.[1] The University Professorship is Harvard's most distinguished professorial post.[2]

This honor was created in 1935 by Harvard's President and Fellows for "individuals of distinction ... working on the frontiers of knowledge, and in such a way as to cross the conventional boundaries of the specialties."[1] The number of University Professors has increased with new endowed gifts to the university. In 2006, there were 21 University Professors at Harvard.[3] As of 2017, there are 26 Harvard University Professors.[4]
