During the last decades, there has occurred an increasing interest in the research literature regarding college teaching. Especially the image of the professor is often combined with various stereotypes, prejudiced attitudes and misunderstandings since it is connected with the correlated situation in universities. The current paper is dealing with the image of the ideal professor as expressed by students in universities. The research is conducted with the use of a questionnaire, where students are called to express their agreement or disagreement on certain statements. The data analysis is correlated with various independent variables, such as the students’ gender, age and political belief. The statements cover all the aspects of a professor’s action, from knowledge and teaching method to political action and relations with society. Hence, we attempt to create a distinct profile of what the students regard as the ideal professor.
