Endowed Chairs

Endowed chairholders generally serve as leaders among faculty members within their departments. Endowed chairs are occupied by those faculty members who tend to be the most visible, both within and outside of the university.

  • They have demonstrated excellence in teaching and in relating to students.
  • They have established research records that include involvement of undergraduate and graduate students in their research programs. 
  • They have demonstrated the ability to unite faith and reason in their work.
