Faculty Honors

Northwestern’s 2,500 faculty members are leaders in their fields. They are Nobel Prize laureates, Tony Award winners, Guggenheim Fellows, and MacArthur Fellows. They continually push the boundaries of knowledge, explore new possibilities, and lead the world in their discoveries and accomplishments. We are justifiably very proud of our esteemed faculty.
