Collegiate Professorships are set up to honor the professorship holder as well as the namesake of the professorship (in this case, Professor Ellen Arruda and Professor Emerita Maria Comninou). They traditionally bear the name of former University faculty members who have made substantial scholarly and other contributions while at the University of Michigan. Professor Emerita Maria Comninou retired from active faculty status on June 30, 2000.
