Welcome to The Robinson Professors of George Mason University.

Since 1984, a large bequest from the late Clarence J. Robinson has allowed George Mason University to appoint to the faculty distinguished professors in the liberal arts and sciences. Clarence J. Robinson Professors are outstanding scholars who are dedicated to undergraduate teaching and whose teaching and scholarship concern broad and fundamental intellectual issues. They have chosen to come to George Mason University from senior positions elsewhere to become closely involved with the education of undergraduate students.
