A named professorship is among the highest honors a university can confer on a faculty member, and these endowed chairs provide the School with a powerful recruiting tool in an intensely competitive marketplace.
Appointment to a named chair is understood throughout the academic world as a statement that a professor has a broad understanding of his or her field, an important vision for the future, and an exceptional ability to communicate that understanding and vision to others.
Named chairs also build community by attracting junior faculty members and PhD students who are eager to work with the outstanding faculty members that these chairs reward, as well as students who relish the opportunity to learn from, and interact with, such renowned and respected thought leaders.
