Every fall, ΦBK partners with the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) and the Carnegie Foundation in honoring the outstanding scholars and teachers selected as U.S. Professors of the Year.
The annual Capitol Hill reception for the professors, held at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., is co-sponsored by ΦBK and CASE.
ΦBK is especially pleased to acknowledge this year’s winners who are also ΦBK members. We thank and honor them, and all of the winners for 2012, for inspiring in others a love for learning and a desire to excel that are founding principles of the Society.

CASE and the Carnegie Foundation have been selecting the U.S. Professors of the Year since 1981. CASE assembles two preliminary panels of judges to select finalists. The Carnegie Foundation then convenes the third and final panel, which selects four national winners. CASE and Carnegie select state winners from top entries resulting from the judging process. The honorees are selected from faculty members nominated by colleges throughout the country.
