Endowed Professorships

An endowed professorship is a vital resource for any college or university. Endowed professorships honor and recognize outstanding faculty members, provide invaluable financial support for innovative research and teaching opportunities, and strengthen Wooster’s traditional disciplines and interdisciplinary endeavors.  

You can make an investment in Wooster’s faculty by establishing an endowed professorship to support a permanent existing position or to create a new position with a gift of $2,000,000 and above. The annual income earned on this gift is enough to pay a senior faculty member’s salary and benefits while also factoring in growth at or above the rate of inflation.
