Laura J. and L. Douglas Meredith Professorships
In 1994 and 1995, SU received bequests from the estate of L. Douglas Meredith to be used for special professorships. Chancellor Shaw and then-Vice Chancellor Vincow created the Laura J. and L. Douglas Meredith Professorships of Teaching Excellence, to be conferred upon a number of tenured professors who have proven track records as outstanding teachers. During their three-year terms, Meredith Professors receive an annual supplemental salary award and an annual fund for professional development. The Meredith Professors also convene a Meredith Symposium, meeting twice a semester to discuss and reflect on the state of teaching at SU and to develop means to work collectively and individually to improve the University.
