UC Davis Health System endowed chairs and professorships
Supporting a diverse, talented faculty
The mark of a great university is its faculty. With more than 1,200 talented faculty members and academic personnel — including a Nobel Prize laureate and members of the National Academy of Sciences — UC Davis School of Medicine, UC Davis Medical Center and the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis are truly a community of scholars and professors helping the university discover and share knowledge to advance health.
One of the most valuable means of recruiting and retaining exceptional faculty is to offer endowed chairs and professorships. Supported in large part by philanthropic gifts, endowments produce annual income that becomes a stream of life-long support. Endowments invigorate research interests, refine and enhance teaching skills and build bridges to academic disciplines.
UC Davis School of Medicine, UC Davis Medical Center and the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing seek philanthropic gifts to fund endowed chairs and professorships for distinguished faculty members. Every gift will make a difference in our ability to recruit and retain top faculty who will continue to discover and share knowledge with the local community and the world.
