endowed faculty

Endowed chairs and professorships represent the highest accolade that a university can bestow upon a faculty member.

Funded endowments promote individual and collaborative faculty research endeavors that frequently result in groundbreaking findings that advance their respective fields of study.

In total, there are sixteen endowed chairs and professorships at YSU across a range of disciplines. YSU faculty are expanding research in academic areas, including Accounting and Finance, Actuarial Science, Economics, Engineering, English, Gerontology, Long-Term Care, Judaic and Holocaust Studies, and History.

By establishing an Endowed Chair or Professorship at the YSU Foundation, you are propelling YSU’s values of advancing academic excellence in teaching and research. For endowed faculty opportunities, contact 330-941-3211 or ysuf@ysufoundation.org.
