About Named Professorships

Named professorships channel additional resources to some of our top faculty members, helping to underwrite cutting-edge research, outstanding teaching and valuable community service.

At UW-Green Bay, named professorships support the innovative and creative work of current outstanding faculty. By providing additional financial resources for research assistants, professional development, equipment and other uses, faculty are able to improve their teaching effectiveness. In turn, our students are ensured of working side-by-side with faculty on the latest developments in their field.

Donors who generously endow named professorships realize that they are not only ensuring academic excellence in teaching today, but that theirs is truly a gift of a lifetime. Named professorships are synonymous with academic excellence and are vital at UW-Green Bay, where students and faculty value the classroom experience.

A named professorship can be established through the UW-Green Bay Foundation with a gift of $200,000 or more.
