2009 Distinguished Professor Emeritus recipients 

Whereas all faculty members who retire from the university in good standing receive the designation Emeritus/a, (as in Professor Emeritus), the Senate also grants the exceptional title Distinguished Professor Emeritus to those who have made an outstanding contribution to the university.

Candidates must be full professors with at least 10 years of experience as a faculty member at Concordia. Additionally, they must demonstrate a remarkable contribution to either teaching or research, or have combined a distinguished academic career with an outstanding contribution to academic administration or service.

Over 60 faculty members have been selected in the past 20 years. In 2009, six exceptional faculty members have joined their ranks:

Frederick Bird, Religion
Jack Lightstone, Religion
James Moore, Political Science
Enn Raudsepp, Journalism
Jane Stewart, Psychology
Mary Vipond, History
