"The Kress Professorship was instrumental in my decision to come to Bucknell. It allowed me to pursue research on Magritte and Dali and to present my work at conferences. My funding also paid for new books and DVDs for my courses, which enriches the classroom experience for students." — Roger Rothman, Samuel H. Kress Professor of Art History, 2003-2008
Bucknell's fertile academic environment appeals to superior students - and professors. Endowed professorships and chairs help Bucknell recruit highly sought-after professors in a competitive market. They also reward current faculty members who educate and inspire at the highest level.
These awards advance scholarship and teaching by providing resources for lab equipment, research and conference travel, undergraduate research assistants and much more. The result? A more vibrant academic program that attracts students, enhances the University's profile and makes a Bucknell degree even more meaningful.
The impact of endowed academic positions doesn't end there. They fund key academic roles in perpetuity, free annual salary dollars to support additional hiring and help maintain our low student-faculty ratio.
The We Do Campaign aims to raise $125 million for endowed professorships and chairs.
