At the heart of any great institution are the people whose vision and talent define it. In the College of Engineering, we seek funding that will enable us to attract and retain world-class engineering scholars. Being able to recognize faculty with support at various stages in their careers - junior faculty with start-up funds, mid-career faculty to applaud outstanding achievements, or senior faculty to award a body of work over a lifetime - is integral to maintaining high-quality educators and researchers. Faculty of the rank of assistant, associate or full professor can hold a named professorship.
A gift of $1,500,000 is required to name a professorship.
