NUS University Professor
The title of University Professor is an honor bestowed upon a very small number of its tenured faculty members at the National University of Singapore (NUS) who rendered outstanding leadership and service to NUS and the wider community. The University Professor title was first handed out in 2000. Presently, there are only five University Professors in NUS.
