J. Visiting Scholars

An increasing number of scholars are interested in affiliating with the Lynch School as Visiting Scholars. Our programs and centers also seek out particular scholars whom they feel would significantly contribute to our ongoing work.

Although the University has not adopted a specific set of policies with regard to Visiting Scholars, there is a set of procedures that guide the appointment of Visiting Professors. Please see Section 4B in Chapter II of the University Statutes for more information.

Scholars interested in coming to the Lynch School as Visiting Professors should apply by sending a letter to the relevant Department Chair or Center Director. This letter should be forwarded to the Dean with a recommendation by the Chair or Director. The memo and email from the Department Chair or Director should include the following information about the visiting scholar:

  1. Name
  2. Sponsoring faculty member and Department
  3. If international, their country of citizenship
  4. Dates of appointment
  5. Potential benefit of this visit to Lynch School faculty and/or students
  6. Verification that there will be no remuneration

The Dean will then evaluate the request and forward his or her recommendation to the Office of the Provost, who must approve all appointments of Visiting Professors.  The Provost's Office will send a letter of invitation to the potential Visiting Scholar.

General information on Visiting Scholars can be found on the website of the Office of International Students and Scholars.
