Professorships, Chairs & Faculty Excellence Endowments

Support for faculty is also an important priority of the New Century of Spirit Campaign. Distinguished faculty committed to scholarship and excellence in teaching, research, and public service stimulate students and strengthen the Western Experience. Endowed faculty positions make a direct contribution to the quality of learning at WKU, enabling academic endeavors that would not otherwise exist. The capacity to attract and retain nationally prominent faculty is essential to WKU’s success in being an effective steward of its region and preparing highly skilled graduates who will be leaders around the globe.

One of the most lasting gifts one can make to a university, such endowments recognize high levels of faculty performance and programs that contribute to the continuing quality improvement of curriculum, students, and faculty. Specific needs include training and development, research support, technology, and travel.
