Is the article really necessary? The english doesn't include 'the' hence it is not referring to a specific set of professors.

Spanish uses an article in many cases where English does not. For example, "El rojo representa el patriotismo" is "Red represents patriotism" in English. Literally it would be "The red represents the patriotism."
