Endowed Professorships      

Attracting the best teacher-scholars

There is no better strategy to attract and retain first-class faculty than to offer them the prestige and support that come with an endowed professorship. These honors signal that our faculty members are among the most prominent in their fields and increase our stature relative to peer institutions. Named professorships offer donors a naming opportunity to support excellence that endures across generations.


Oswego can use these positions to reward its best faculty or to recruit top professors from other institutions. They provide funds for competitive salaries, research facilities, student assistants, conference support and other incentives that enable high-caliber professors to do their best work.

Endowed professorships begin at $1 million. For information on how to establish an endowed fund and recognition opportunities, please review Recognition and Naming Opportunities.
