Thanks to the generosity of Mary L. Cornille and Jack Cogan, Wellesley College is able to appoint each year the Mary L. Cornille Distinguished Visiting Professor in the Humanities. Cornille Professors are in residence for either a semester or a year. During this time, they contribute to the intellectual life of Wellesley College faculty with special attention to the intellectual growth of our undergraduates.

The Cornille Professorship is administered jointly by the Office of the Provost and by the Suzy Newhouse Center for the Humanities, with which the Cornille Professor is automatically affiliated.
