Endowed Professors

The Board of Trustees approves the establishment of endowed professorship positions as well as the appointment of faculty to the professorships. Appointment to an endowed professorship is one of the highest honors an academic institution can bestow upon a faculty member.

At The Ohio State University, endowed professorships are essential to achieving ever-increasing excellence in our missions of teaching, research and patient care. Endowed positions illustrate the powerful partnership between faculty and philanthropists in defining dreams of discovery and bringing them to life.
