Chairs and Professorships
For a faculty member, holding an endowed professorship is a high honor. These elevated positions recognize individuals who have had a significant impact on their field through scholarship, creativity, and leadership.
UIC Engineering seeks to establish new endowed faculty chair and professorship positions to help attract and retain brilliant scholars. By providing funding to endow a faculty position, donors create a lasting opportunity to recognize great talent. These gifts provide dedicated resources for innovative research and teaching. They enable extraordinary people to excel in scholarship and to serve as magnets for intellectual activity among students, industry leaders, and research organizations.
