Endowed Chairs

The Board of Trustees approves the establishment of endowed chair positions as well as the appointments of faculty to the chairs. Appointment to an endowed chair remains the highest honor an academic institution can bestow upon a faculty member.

At The Ohio State University, endowed chairs are essential to achieving ever-increasing excellence in our missions of teaching, research and patient care. Endowed positions illustrate the powerful partnership between faculty and philanthropists in defining dreams of discovery and bringing them to life.
