Support Faculty Efforts
Distinguished professorships are endowed financial awards that are established by donors to support the research and teaching of outstanding faculty at University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis.
These awards aid in recruiting and recognizing professors who have made a significant impact upon their field through scholarship, creativity and leadership.
Holding such a professorship is an honor in academia, and these awards allow the University to reward and retain its best faculty and recruit top faculty from around the country.
Endowed chairs are academic positions permanently funded by the revenue from an endowment specifically set up for that purpose. Typically, the position is designated for a specific department or specialty area.
Endowed chairs are prestigious positions that also help the University by offsetting faculty salaries thereby reducing its student-to-faculty ratio or allowing funds to be redirected toward other needs.
These types of gifts honor and recognize the distinction of superior faculty leaders while providing invaluable financial support – above and beyond salary – for use in research, teaching, or service activities.
