Faculty Chairs and Professorships

A great faculty is the essential foundation of a truly great university. Exceptional educators and scholars create and present unmatched programs, engage in the highest caliber research, and most importantly, bring out the best in their students.

To ensure that DU recruits the finest faculty members and keeps them, new chairs and professorships are essential. The University faces intense competition for these extraordinary educators, and the ability to offer a candidate an endowed chair is a powerful attraction.
