Endowed Chairs & Professorships

Honor a mentor. An endowed chair or professorship bestows a great honor upon a faculty member, as well as providing additional resources for research and teaching.  As the donor, you may establish and name a professorship or chair at UH, or contribute to an existing one. Professorships can be endowed for a minimum gift of $500,000 and chairs for a minimum of $1 million.

Endowed chairs and professors at the University of Houston range from leaders of organizations to recipients of numerous awards, such as the National Medal of Science and the MacArthur "Genius" Grant.
