    Prof. A of/from University B

    Do native speakers use "of" or "from" when they say "Prof. A of/from University B"?

    For example: We asked for an opinion from Prof. A (A=last name) of/from University B (B=university name) because he is an authority on the subject.

    Which preposition should I use here, of or from?

    Thank you.

    They both work for me. I slightly prefer "of" but I can't really say why.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
