Faculty Support

Robust faculty support is an ongoing vital need within the College. Primarily, this support comes in the form of professorships and chairs.

Endowed and non-endowed (annual gift) professorships are essential for attracting and retaining talented faculty members. In addition to the prestige of holding a named professorship, the donated funds can be used for research, graduate fellowships, equipment and travel.

Endowed and non-endowed chairs are similar to professorships, but provide even more financial support. Individuals who hold named chairs are considered the most renowned and acclaimed authorities within their field. Because supported chairs generate more resources than professorships, they can attract the most well-known experts to the College.
