What is an Endowed Chair
An endowed chair is an elite faculty appointment that carries with it a stable source of funding to support the chair-holder’s work. It is the most prestigious honor a university can confer upon a faculty member. A chair is usually established by a pool of philanthropically provided funds totaling $1 million, which is invested in a professionally managed fund. The principle, or “corpus,” remains in this fund, generating interest income that is used to attract and support the work of aleading scientist and/or educator in perpetuity.

• Establishes the University as a leader in the chairholder’s field.
