Endowed Chairs, Professorships, and Fellowships

Over the years, thoughtful and generous benefactors, wisely perceiving the critical importance to the University of Richmond of a strong faculty, have endowed chairs, professorships, and fellowships. These endowed funds offer a special way to recognize and pay tribute to distinguished faculty members who set the University's intellectual tone through their teaching, scholarship and research. Endowed chairs, professorships and fellowships serve as living memorials to donors and others whom the donor has wished to honor.
