About Endowed Chairs

Endowed chairs offer many benefits to the University, the donor, educators and, most importantly, students.

At UW-Green Bay, endowed chairs allow the University to hire established scholars with national and international reputations. The faculty members who are chairholders receive recognition for personal achievements in their fields, and the satisfaction that the University supports research and quality teaching in their discipline. Students are challenged and guided by exposure to the highest quality academic leadership.

Donors who generously endow chairs know that they are not only ensuring academic excellence in teaching today, but that theirs is truly a gift of a lifetime. Endowed chairs are living memorials, perpetuating the donor’s name, signifying a permanent commitment to quality education.

An endowed chair can be established through the UW-Green Bay Foundation with a gift of $2 million or more.
