Rhodes Professors are appointed for a period of three years with the possibility of a renewal for two additional years and are considered full members of the Cornell faculty. The purpose of the professorship is to strengthen the undergraduate experience by bringing to the university individuals from every walk of life who represent excellence of achievement and to create opportunities for interaction with the undergraduate community. During each year of their appointment, Rhodes Class of '56 Professors visit campus and are typically in residence for a week. Nominations for the Frank H. T. Rhodes Class of 1956 Professorship may be made by any member of the Cornell community including faculty, staff, students, alumni and Cornell groups and organizations. A call for nominations is circulated in late summer and early fall. The nomination process will have two stages: Pre-Proposal Letter: The first stage involves the submission of a pre-proposal letter noting the nominee’s qualifications and achievements, along with a copy of the nominee’s curriculum vitae. The pre-proposal nomination letter should mention house, faculty, departments, or programs in addition to those of the primary sponsor or sponsors that have either agreed to support the nomination or might reasonably be expected to do so. Also, the selection committee would find it useful in its selection process if one or two student letters were included as to why the nomination would enhance their experience.
