Jordan Ellenberg joins a Nobel Prize-winning physicist, another bestselling author and a leader in global sustainable agriculture are among six newly elected Andrew Dickson White Professors-at-Large at Cornell.
The professors-at-large program at Cornell sponsors up to 20 outstanding scholars and public intellectuals at one time, in the life sciences, physical sciences, humanities, social sciences and the arts.
In each three-year period during their term, professors-at-large visit campus for about a week while classes are in session, to interact with students and faculty and enliven the intellectual and cultural life of the university. The program sponsors up to six visits per academic year, and activities such as public lectures and seminars.
Their six-year terms are effective July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2025. Candidates are nominated by Cornell faculty members; appointments are considered following review and recommendation by a faculty selection committee.
