Endowing a professorship encourages stimulating teaching, innovative techniques, and thoughtful mentoring.
Professors at Baker University know their students and are personally committed to their success from the moment they step into their classroom. Not only does our faculty motivate students inside the classroom, but they also engage them as partners and colleagues in research and discovery.
Competition is intense for the best faculty, particularly at a private liberal arts university like Baker. Endowed professorships advance the university by encouraging excellence in teaching and providing significant opportunities for our faculty members. Gifts for endowed professorships enable the university to hire the best and the brightest faculty members—a necessity for a university to remain competitive. Endowed professorships also help fund collaborative efforts that promote student participation and interdisciplinary teamwork.
