Endowed faculty are the top scholars in their fields – innovative researchers who push the frontiers of scholarship and engaged educators who enrich the academic environment.

We are pleased to partner with you to showcase your accomplishments in research, teaching, and service for this academic year as a result of the funding from your endowed chair/professorship. Your reporting will convey to your donors the true impact your work has on the University and the greater community.

Your report will be shared with the Provost’s Office and your Dean as well as your donor(s) in the annual endowment report published in the fall. The endowment report includes financial data on the University’s overall endowment as well as fund-specific data personalized to your donor(s).

Thank you for collaborating with us to celebrate your exceptional achievements with the donors who support you!
