Academic Chairs and Professorships have been established to attract, recognize and reward members of University faculty who are internationally acknowledged scholars of exceptional distinction whose scholarly activity and accomplishments will enrich selected areas of research and teaching. They serve to attract and retain internationally renowned researchers. The recipients hold elite faculty positions that represent prestige, leadership, and profound responsibility. Enrichments provided by a professorship include research funding and support for teaching which are important for the recruitment and retention of the world’s greatest scholars.
Endowing a chair or naming a professorship provides the donor the opportunity to honor a distinguished scholar’s contribution to the academic scholarship and creates a branding opportunity through broader visibility at a global scale.
