Your philanthropic faculty support gift is an investment in the future, providing the faculty member with flexibility they often aren’t afforded with state and federal funds. The gift options are numerous, ranging from unrestricted academic department support, to equipment, in-kind gifts, conference travel, research funds and endowed faculty positions, such as chairs and professorships. Learn about how you can have an impact on one of our newest faculty members in the CA&ES Outlook magazine.
A high priority for the college are endowed chairs and professorships, distinctions awarded to a faculty member or Cooperative Extension specialist in recognition of past and potential contributions to the individual’s academic and research discipline. These endowments not only provide funding to support teaching, research and outreach responsibilities, but they also give UC Davis a greater impact as a world-class university.
With these positions, we are able to attract and retain the brightest teachers and researchers who contribute to the scholarly activity and effective functioning of their academic units through teaching, seminars, or other intellectual pursuits that benefit students and external stakeholders.
