Attract the best and brightest faculty
Our faculty are true teachers and scholars, as committed to inspiring our students to learn and grow as they are to generating new knowledge in their fields and to engaging in applied research and outreach in the community.
Continuing to attract the best faculty requires having the professional development and research funds to retain them. Goals in this area include increasing the amount of endowed academic chairs and professorships and developing funds for faculty research and development.
Gifts to support academic programs provide the university’s leadership with the resources to fund innovative programs, bring prominent lecturers to campus, invest in faculty and staff, and furnish more resources to maintain a high caliber university.
Fellowships allow the University to offer financial assistance competitive with other universities, attract and reward exceptional graduate students and strengthen graduate programs. Fellowship funds can be used to enhance the graduate student’s experience through tuition assistance, research, conference attendance and more.
The Honors Program, established over 15 years ago, has offered academically gifted and highly motivated students a challenging and exceptional experience that has broadened and deepened their undergraduate program.
