Program and Faculty Support

Universities that recognize and support faculty through endowed chairs and professorships have the upper hand when it comes to recruiting and retaining top faculty members:

  • Endowed Chairs – An endowed chair is a coveted position that brings prestige and distinction to an academic discipline and provides faculty support for research and creative work. It offers opportunities for program growth and development and recognizes scholarly excellence. Endowed chair positions recognize the generosity of donors in perpetuity and serve as a valuable tool in recruiting and retaining outstanding faculty members. The minimum funding level for an endowed chair is $1 million.
  • Professorships – A professorship expands opportunities for exceptional faculty members by providing additional resources for teaching, research, and professional activities and development. Faculty members benefit from the coveted title, and students benefit from access to extraordinary professional development and interaction, insights, and leadership. The minimum funding level for a professorship is $100,000.

Named Spaces & Facilities

Opportunities to name a building, classroom, lab, or other campus space exists in many locations on campus. Individuals, businesses, or other organizations can make their mark on campus by naming a building, classroom, lab, or one of various other spaces available around campus. Contact a member of the Foundation board or professional staff for information on available spaces and facilities.

Capital Projects

Providing the Central Texas region and university community with state of the art facilities and a campus environment that supports student success is critical for the continued growth of Texas A&M University – Central Texas.
