Endowed Professorships & Chairs


Exemplified by world-class scholarship and instruction, endowed professorships and chairs are among the most significant awards conferred to faculty. Income from these funds provides salary, research support and resources for program development that enable educators to pursue projects at the forefront of their fields. Because they foster exceptional opportunities for teaching and research, endowed positions are fundamental to the University of Florida’s mission.

We are proud to recognize the inspiring array of individuals and organizations honored by endowed professorships and chairs at the University of Florida. The shared vision of these benefactors has created a legacy of achievement for our institution.
