BE PART OF THE MOVEMENT.
The Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design is establishing an endowed professorship for interior architecture in honor of Houston's pioneering modern interior architect Sally Walsh.
The Sally Walsh Endowed Professorship will support educational and research activities advancing the mission of the Hines College’s Interior Architecture Program and developing interdisciplinary leadership and research between the College’s Interior Architecture, Industrial Design, and Architecture programs.
Funding an endowed professorship is one of the most forward-thinking acts of philanthropy because an endowed fund provides sustaining support in perpetuity. Your donation will be a permanent tribute to the life and work of Sally Walsh and a sound investment in the future of design. This endowed professorship will allow the university to recruit and retain top faculty and reward those who excel in their field.
The fundraising goal for the Sally Walsh Endowed Professorship is $250,000. We rely on gifts of all levels to create this lasting legacy in her memory.
