Endowed Professorships

Endowment Supports Our Intellectual Heroes

Endowed professorships are crucial for bringing the best scholars, researchers, and innovators to St. Lawrence.  An endowed professorship is bestowed on a faculty member who has earned great respect in their discipline.  An endowed department chair exists in perpetuity at St. Lawrence, supporting salaries and providing an annual research stipend to stimulate new teaching and learning opportunities. 

Your gift both provides students the opportunity to study with some of the foremost experts in their fields, and it honors the exceptional educators who have made a profound difference in your life.
