McAndless Distinguished Chair

The McAndless Distinguished Chair was established with the help of a generous bequest from the late M. Thelma McAndless, a professor in the Department of English Language and Literature. The McAndless Scholar usually holds a one-semester appointment and is a nationally prominent figure in the arts or humanities.
