Endowed chairs are established through the generosity of forward-thinking donors who view the longevity of the University as a worthy investment. These gifts are invested and grow in perpetuity, allowing the University to utilize the revenue year after year to attract and retain the most inspiring members of faculty, those who aim to form the hearts and minds of our students. In celebration of our 75th anniversary, we are pleased to recognize this prestigious group of donors and chair holders at UST.
