Endowed Chairs or Professorships
Endowed chairs are one of the highest honors that the Whitacre College of Engineering can bestow upon a faculty member. Funding provided by a chair often is used to attract an expert in a particular field of study in an effort to advance that or a related field or to solve scientific questions and issues. Such endowed positions provide a reliable source of annual support for the academic and research efforts of distinguished faculty, and can be used for the professor's teaching, research, service activities, and programs.
Endowed professorships are a coveted and widely recognized accolade, recognizing a faculty member who has made significant contributions to his or her field and the university. Funding provided by a professorship provides long-term financial stability and is often used to augment a faculty member's salary in order to remain competitive. Funds may also be used for research, service activities, and programs.
