Named in honor of significant benefactors to the college, each professorship recognizes a faculty member who has demonstrated outstanding performance in instruction, scholarship and service, while serving as a positive role model for students. Recipients receive a salary stipend to further advance their work and, in most cases, retain the professorship for a specific number of years.
