I have a list of references in my CV. One of them happens to be the Dean of the graduate school and the other a Vice Chancellor. Both of these roles are administrative and their primary position is that of a Professor. Would listing these referees as
John H. Doeberg Professor and Dean of the Graduate School University of Foo Jane Q. Publicowski Professor and Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs University of Bar
be better (give more credence/weight) than simply listing them as a Professor. I know that ultimately what they write in those letters is what matters, but for the purposes of this question, it can be safely assumed that both letters are going to be stellar recommendations.
