Gifts Supporting Faculty

At the heart of Oregon State University's pursuit of excellence are faculty: scholars and scientists who advance knowledge while teaching, challenging, and guiding students. These are the men and women in whom OSU's educational mission lives and breathes.

There is no more effective means of enabling OSU to compete in recruiting and retaining top academic talent than by establishing endowed faculty positions.

Living Legacy

Your generous gift can create an endowed deanship, chair, professorship, or faculty scholar position at Oregon State University.

Endowed chairs are proven catalysts for transformation and achievement. They enable OSU to attract and support extraordinary researchers and teachers who bring our programs to national prominence.

Professorships honor our best minds. These positions, which can be established through endowments or immediately expendable funds, can also reward and support rising stars among the college's faculty, thereby increasing the likelihood of their success and retention.
