Endowed Chairs

The Endowed Chairs for Excellence Program provides the college financial resources to directly impact learning and teaching environments. There are five categories of Endowed Chairs, many of which have been named for the donors who, in establishing endowed chairs perpetuate their belief in the importance of education and the quality of CF programs and services. Currently, 52 grants are awarded to faculty and staff.
